The Expungement Project
For individuals that lack financial resources, a youthful indiscretion or a moment of bad judgment, permanently alters their life’s trajectory. The social consequences of an arrest or citation, much less a criminal conviction, are tremendous. Even an individual who has charges dropped may be subject to a degree of social ostracism and a de facto public finding of guilt.
Indigent South Carolinians, unable to afford expungement, are faced with increased difficulties in finding gainful employment and reclaiming their civil liberties. Your support is crucial to providing a fresh start at life, for those whose only obstacle to expungement is a lack of financial resources.
The Keith J. Williams Chapter of the National Black Law Students Association at the Charleston School of Law is hosting an Expungement Workshop, and we need your help to make this event a success!
If you are able, we would love for you to sponsor a qualified candidate for expungement. Fees for obtaining an expungement are established by South Carolina law. Generally, fees are $250 to the Solicitor’s Office, $25 to SLED, and $35 to the Clerk of Court.
