WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas nonprofit wants to help people who qualify expunge their records of crimes committed as juveniles.

Kansas Big Brothers Big Sisters is hosting a free Juvenile Expungement Clinic on July 16 in Wichita.

Brittany Waldman, recruiter and events coordinator, told The Wichita Eagle (https://j.mp/1UIAbh3) the purpose of the clinic is to help anyone who qualifies to expunge their records or to help them successfully complete their diversion programs.

She says to qualify applicants must be between the ages of 16 and 24 and have had some type of contact with the juvenile justice system. They cannot have had any adult convictions.

Participants will meet with staff to learn how the expungement process works. Waldman says representatives from Kansas Legal Services will also be available.
