Expungement Fair


Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Deborah A. Thomas (second from right) facilitated an expungement fair for ­veterans on Saturday, Feb. 27, at the Legal Aid and Defender offices in Detroit. Also taking part in the program were (l-r) Rhonda Brazile of LAD, Earlene Baggett-Hayes of The Law & Mediation Center PLLC, Benton Martin of LAD, Karen Morgan, Jeremy Henner of Fowler & Henner PLC, and Monica Hoskins. The fair helped ­veterans learn about ­expungement laws and federal pardons to give themselves a fresh start and remove any ­barriers to employment, ­housing, and access to federal assistance programs.
