    Pima County’s Public Defense Services office will offer three legal clinics beginning Jan. 24 that will assist people arrested for, charged with, and/or convicted of certain crimes in petitioning the court to seal their criminal records.  
    gavelAt the free clinics, clients are able to meet with an attorney to determine whether they can ask the court to seal their record. Attorneys will help petitioners fill out paperwork to seal their record, and share information on how sealing their record might affect their individual situation.
    The clinics, which all run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Public Defense Services 10th floor conference room, 33 N. Stone Ave., will be offered on:
    • Tuesday, Jan. 24
    • Tuesday, Feb. 28
    • Tuesday, March 28
    These are walk-in clinics. No appointment is necessary.
    Public Defense Services offers court-authorized legal services for all those in need. The office oversees the work of the Public Defender, Legal Defender, Legal Advocate, Public Fiduciary, Office of Court Appointed Counsel, Office of Children’s Counsel and the Mental Health Defender.
