Expungement Day Project
The Topeka Bar Association will host an Expungement Day project in April 2018. The Expungement Day project is a pro bono service project designed to offer individuals the opportunity to have certain qualifying criminal arrests, convictions and diversions expunged through a simplified process. This may assist in removing barriers which prevented employment and housing opportunities. Only adult arrests, convictions and diversions occurring in Shawnee County qualify for this project. Federal and municipal court cases cannot be addressed at this project.
The event to submit Expungement Petitions to the Court will be held on Friday, April 20, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. through 3:00 p.m. at the Agriculture Hall building located at the Expo Center. Entry is at 17th and S.W. Exoduster Dr.
Individuals are encouraged to obtain and fill out the necessary forms prior to arriving. The forms can be downloaded from the Shawnee County District Attorney’s web site at http://www.snco.us/da/expungements.asp. Volunteers will be available to provide those seeking an expungement limited assistance in completing the expungement application forms.
Individuals seeking an expungement may use the Shawnee County District Court's website to search for their cases within Shawnee County District Court.
The Topeka Bar Association will hold an informational meeting to explain the Clean Slate Expungement Project for individuals interested in applying for an expungement on Friday, April 13 from 3-5 p.m. at the Topeka Shawnee County Public Library in Room 101B.
