(MURFREESBORO)  If you have criminal records that make it difficult to get employment, housing or other opportunities, help may be available through a free Expungement Clinic from 9:00 o’clock Saturday morning until 2:00 that afternoon on Saturday, July 31, 2021 in the new Rutherford County Judicial Center, 116 W. Lytle Street. It is sponsored by the Rutherford and Cannon County Bar Association.

The event was initially scheduled for early June, but has now been rescheduled for July 31, 2021, to allow more participation from the community. The deadline to apply has also been extended 5:00PM Friday evening, June 18, 2021.


Rutherford and Cannon County Bar Association’s Public Service Chair Chase Doscher said, “We are disappointed in the delay of this event, but we know that the event will be a great success on its new date. Above all, we look forward to helping those in need.”

Will You Get EXPUNGEMENT That Day?

Officials explain that the application window closes early to allow clerks the time needed to research the applicants so that we can ideally complete the entire process on the actual day of the clinic.

The 2021 RCCBA Expungement Clinic relies upon the support of numerous elected officials, including County Mayor Bill Ketron, Circuit Court Judge James Turner, and Circuit Court Clerk Melissa Harrell. The Bar Association remains incredibly grateful to these officials, whose support is necessary to provide this public service.
