Second Chance Desk Created To Help Georgians Remove Certain Convictions From Criminal Record

In January, Senate Bill 288 became law.

The new legislation allows Georgians to restrict and seal certain misdemeanor and felony

On Tuesday’s edition of “Closer Look,” Brenda Smeeton, the legal director at the Georgia Justice Project, and Cobb County District Attorney Flynn Broady talked with show host Rose Scott about how the new law will eliminate barriers and help people rebuild their lives.

The guests also discussed the role and the opening of the Cobb Second Chance Desk and the importance of criminal justice reform.
