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.”

Yolo Hospice grief group convenes Wednesdays, April 4 to May 2

Yolo Hospice grief group convenes Wednesdays, April 4 to May 2

The death of a loved one, can be a life changing event. As time passes and the intensity of grief lessens, a sense of possibility, hope and ability to imagine ways that one can begin to move forward begin to set in. It is common to look for extra support at this time. Establishing new goals, facing the changes in your life and moving forward is an act of will. The group environment of Moving Forward: Reinvesting in Life after Loss allows for support, understanding, and discussion of these changes. Due to the group’s focus it is recommended that at least a year has passed since the participant’s loss.
