Having a criminal record can make it difficult to obtain a job, a house, and other necessities that are integral to living a good life. It’s a Catch-22. Punishment for crimes is meant to rehabilitate people, but that record of punishment often makes it harder for people to rehabilitate. The Bloomfield-Garfield Corporation wants to help. The nonprofit is hosting an Expungement Clinic to help people start the process of clearing their criminal records. Duquesne University School of Law professor Tracey McCants Lewis will discuss expungements, record sealing, and pardons. She will be able to answer any questions on the intricacies of these topics, as well as help people determine if they are eligible to have their criminal records cleared. BGC recommends that people call ahead at 412-353-9881 to RSVP.
