Attorneys will present information and answer questions about Indiana’s new expungement law at a forum Saturday in Gary.
The Indiana Criminal Conviction Expungement Forum will include presentations on House Enrolled Act 1482, which allows arrest and conviction records to be sealed or expunged in many more cases than previously permitted. The law took effect July 1.
The forum will be at 2 p.m. at Indiana University Northwest in Bergland Auditorium of the Savannah Center, 3400 Broadway, Gary.
Attendees interested in information about possible expungement are requested to bring the following, if possible:
- Their most recent court docket sheet, available from the clerk of courts’ office in the county where the case was handled;
- Their complete criminal history, available online at www.in.gov/isp under the “Limited Criminal History” tab; and
- Their most recent appellate court documents if a case was appealed to a higher court.
The forum is sponsored by the Gary Commission on the Social Status of Black Males in partnership with the James Kimbrough Bar Association; the Brother 2 Brother student organization at IU Northwest; Nation of Islam; Hillcrest Manor Selfology Institute; and Progressive Community Church.
