Trine Fort Wayne event focuses on expungement law, Trine program

Local residents are invited to learn about Indiana’s expungement law and Trine University’s Master of Science in Criminal Justice program during a free lunch and learn event Nov. 7 at Trine University Fort Wayne.

Barbara Molargik-Fitch, J.D., director of Trine’s Master of Science with a major in Criminal Justice (MSCJ) program, will present information on “Indiana’s Expungement Law and How it Affects You.” The Indiana law, as revised in 2014, allows individuals to expunge certain offenses from their criminal records. The new law, also known as the “Second Chance Law,” is intended to give individuals a second chance.
