Public Defender’s Office & UCD Law School Partner to Help Rehabilitated Offenders Clean Up Records

Yolo County Public Defender Tracie Olson announces the launch of the Record Mitigation and Community Reintegration Clinic.  The result of a collaboration between the Public Defender’s Office and the University of California, Davis, School of Law, the clinic will help rehabilitated offenders clean up their criminal records to remove barriers to economic stability and avoid recidivism. 

“Individuals with criminal convictions face significant roadblocks to full reintegration into society,” said Yolo County Public Defender Tracie Olson.  “Long after probation has ended or a jail term served, the presence of a conviction acts to reduce access to affordable housing, public benefits and student loans, and to severely diminish employment, among other hurdles.  Compounded by the social stigma attached to a criminal record, these collateral consequences threaten to impose a lifetime of disadvantage on ex-offenders.”

The E15M program brings to the famiies and students the realization that drinking and driving is lethal, and, that fatalities do touch us all. 

All who participated in this mock demonstration from emergency responders, law enforcement and LEC-S, have experienced these scenes many times over and it's this E15M Program's desire to educate our youth that choices they make today aff
