Would you like to have a fresh start with a clean criminal history record?

Placer County’s Business Advantage Network in association with Legal Services of Northern California offers a Clean Slate Clinic monthly the first Wednesday of every month to assist participants in removing or dismissing past convictions from their records.

Eligible Participants

Eligible participants are those who:

  • Have no pending charges
  • Are not on parole or have completed at least half of their probation term
  • Have documentation of their criminal record either through court records (if they have only 1 to 2 convictions and no other arrest) or RAP Sheet (preferable)
  • All fines, fees, and restitution have been completely paid or will soon be.
    • To determine if they have any outstanding fines, fees, or restitution, participants can call:
      • Placer County Revenue Services: 916-543-3900
      • Sacramento County Revenue Recovery: 916-875-7500
      • El Dorado County Revenue Recovery: 530-621-5780

Prepare for the Clinic

Preparing for the Clean Slate Clinic:

  • Participant must be Live Scanned
  • Obtain RAP Sheet. The agency that does the Live Scan will send the request to the Department of Justice (DOJ) but the participant must ask them to.
