BATON ROUGE, La. (LOCAL 33) (FOX 44) - For those with East Baton Rouge convictions, your next opportunity to expunge them from your record is coming next month.
The ninth BREES expungement event is scheduled to occur on June 2nd from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The event will be held at 8894 Airline Highway, Suite Q in the Connell’s Village Shopping Center.
The ninth installment comes on the heels of the successful expungement event on May 5.
A group of all-volunteer staff from the EBR District Attorney, the BR Public Defender, the BR City Prosecutor and the Clerks of both the 19th Judicial District Court and the BR City Court helped more than 55 people during the four hour event.
According to Public Defender Mike Mitchell, "due to the high volume this program has achieved, he has had to increase the number of volunteer attorneys from three to six."
Individuals with convictions can have their records expunged any day of the week, just show up at the EBR Clerk of Court to begin the process.
The EBR Clerk of Court is located at 300 North Boulevard.
