allstaractivist note: This is the start of “Operation Clear My Record”. My last offense having occurred at least ten years ago, I supposedly qualify for all legal remedies to clear up my criminal record as much as is possible which if completely successful will still be a far, far cry from “whole”. As I’ve said before, once you offend, you can NEVER get back no matter what you do. At the most fundamental of levels, this is un-Christian, as a practical matter however, disenfranchisement of the offender endangers us all (refer to previous post here). Today it’s me, tomorrow it could be you. I will be documenting this process every step of the way.
Thank goodness the process has somewhat been automated, this wasn’t available when I was first convicted.
allstaractivist note: Unfortunately, the Clear My Record webportal above did not have an option for Solono County, where I lived for approximately five years and was jailed once. Below is the Solono County Public Defenders office and process for Expungement or Dismissal. Looks like I’ll be doing this one the hard way.
Below is the Solono County Public Defenders Expungement Packet pdf which contains “step by step” instructions detailing how one may go about the process. SolanoCountyPDexpungmentpacket.pdf
