For those with criminal records only!

Another seminar takes place Friday for the benefit of those with criminal records who wish to gain employment but need a clean record to do so. Tomorrow afternoon’s 3:30 pardon and  expungement seminar by the South Carolina Probation, Parole and Pardon Office, with help from Tri-County Technical College, has attracted a registration list of 16. But Greg Stewart, director of Oconee Probation, Parole and Pardons, says others who would like to attend a future seminar should call Sandra Strickland at Tri-County Tech at 864/646-1732. “We’re primarily trying to educate the public because the job environment out there is so tough. To be licensed or bonded, you may need to seek one of these two programs if you have a prior criminal record,” Stewart said.
