Commission Chairman Marilyn Kirkpatrick and Commissioner William McCurdy II are hosting the North Las Vegas Bench Warrant Quashing & Resource Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, June 26, at the North Las Vegas Justice Center, 2428 N. Martin L. King Boulevard.
Residents with outstanding bench warrants in North Las Vegas Justice Court or North Las Vegas Municipal Court may be able to have their warrants resolved during the event, and anyone with issues in other local courts will be able to get free legal advice on their case. The fair will also have information about sealing eviction records, sealing criminal records and job training.
“Sometimes relatively minor legal troubles significantly impact a person’s ability to get a job or a place to live,” Chairman Kirkpatrick said. “We want to help people take care of their legal issues and get their lives back on track.”
“Everyone makes mistakes, but we don’t want a small mistake to be a barrier to employment,” Commissioner McCurdy said. “This event will give people the opportunity to move on from their legal issues.”
The resource fair is being supported by the County Public Defender’s Office, Mi Familia Vota, the ACLU of Nevada, Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, Nevada Legal Services, Workforce Connections and KCEP FM 88.1.
Registration is not required, and the resource fair is free to attend.
