Public Defender’s March 14 Event Offers Legal Services and Information

Public Defender’s March 14 Event Offers Legal Services and Information

The Yolo County Public Defender’s Record Mitigation and Community Reintegration Clinic will host a half-day event to help rehabilitated offenders clean up their criminal records and to provide information about available community and government resources.  The event will occur on Friday, March 14, 1:00-5:00 p.m. in the Atrium of the Yolo County Administration Building, located at 625 Court Street in Woodland. 

Individuals with criminal convictions face significant roadblocks to full reintegration into society, such as restricted opportunities for employment and denial of access to social services like public housing and benefits.  However, under California law, rehabilitated offenders can petition the court for various forms of relief including dismissals of former convictions (also known as “expungements”) and reduction of certain felony convictions to misdemeanors.

New data released today reveals that Yolo County has more stores selling flavored tobacco products than other areas in the state, and more of these stores are near schools.  These findings are part of a statewide survey on the availability and marketing of tobacco, alcohol and both unhealthy and healthy food products in stores that sell tobacco – the first time all three categories have been analyzed together.  Between July and October 2013, more than 700 public health representatives, community volunteers and youth collected data for the survey from over 7,300 diverse retail stores including convenience, supermarket, liquor, tobacco, small market, discount, drug and big-box stores.
