Low-level offenders in Wichita get chance for clean record

KSAL StaffFebruary 21, 2016

Lawyers and volunteers will team up in March to help people in Wichita qualify to wipe their criminal records clean.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/21aY727) reports that Clean Slate Day on March 4 will be free for many in the community for whom the fee is prohibitive. Local real estate agent Colby Sandlian has chipped in to pay the fees, while defense lawyers are donating their time and Volunteer Kansas is providing additional support.

When Sandlian was inspired to help low-level offenders get their records clean after attending a presentation about criminal justice reform by Koch Industries in September. He made a $10,000 commitment to put that plan in motion.

Clean Slate Day is part of the Wichita Bar Association’s 100th Anniversary.
