Post Conviction Forum: A Conviction With Options
November 2, 2019 @ 7:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
One in four people in the U.S. is struggling with the collateral consequences of having a conviction on their record. In most states, expungement will never be a reality for Black people and people of color. Community organizers and activists are now exploring the post-conviction process as a tool to overturn or modify unfair and unjust convictions. Maybe you or someone you know was coerced to take a bad plea deal.
The following topics will be discussed…NOTE: Both Federal (including District of Columbia) and Maryland State case law will be addressed.
- Post Conviction
- Sentence Modification
- Converting Felony to a Misdemeanor
- Coram Nobis
- Juvenile Lifers motions
- Reversing Illegal sentences
