Legal assistance clinic to help clear criminal records
JASPER COUNTY, Miss. (WDAM) – This weekend, the Jasper County Community Center will host a legal awareness clinic for ex-convicts.
The clinic is for anyone convicted of a felony or misdemeanor.
They will provide you with financial literacy, foreclosure prevention, and write-off assistance.
It will take place on Friday March 11 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The community center is located at 124 Edmond King Road in Bay Springs.
Community center manager Ronald Keyes says their goal is to help people get a fresh start.
“Having an arrest record or a conviction can haunt a person for a very long time. If that person goes and applies for a job, a house, or even a school… often they will be asked if they have a criminal record. What we would like to do is help these people on their way to a new beginning. That’s the whole point of why we would like to have this radiation clinic,” Keyes says.
If you have a criminal record, you must provide the indictment, the order of conviction and your order of discharge. If you have a criminal record, you must provide an extract from the criminal record.
To make an appointment, call (601) 670-0847. Masks are mandatory for those who will be going to the clinic.
