Another Shelby County Expungement Clinic will take place Saturday

"I believe just because you have a criminal record, it doesn't mean it's a life sentence for you," Kuhn told ABC24 at a previous clinic.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Another expungement clinic is planned for Saturday in Memphis.

Shelby County Court Clerk Heidi Kuhn announced the clinic will be held Saturday, June 25, 2022, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at New Direction Christian Church at 6120 Winchester Road.

Expungement allows for certain crimes to be removed from a person's records. Not every crime qualifies.

"I believe just because you have a criminal record, it doesn't mean it's a life sentence for you," Kuhn told ABC24 at a previous clinic. “So this offers people an opportunity to come out to see if they're eligible for an expungement, which could aid in getting a job, getting a house, getting a loan. Just really giving them the opportunity to get on the right track.”

Kuhn said Shelby County has expunged records for more than 4,000 people since she took office in 2018. But she also said only 10% of Americans know they qualify for expungement, so she wants to make sure people know they might be eligible.
