Resources for Students and Jobseekers
San Bernardino County Public Defender staff assist individuals with becoming productive and positive members of the community by clearing criminal convictions. If the court grants post-conviction relief, the individual is released from all disabilities flowing from the conviction, thereby nullifying the effects of the conviction for most employment purposes. Although the petition does not remove the court records from public inspection, and it may not prevent the conviction from being used as a prior to increase punishment in case of a subsequent conviction, it may assist individuals with obtaining employment or registering for school. This is just one aspect of our holistic approach towards rehabilitation and reintegration in a way that benefits the community.
