Second chance for some
FORT WAYNE—Indiana State Representative Jud McMillin (R-68th), the sponsor and one of the architects of the state’s Second Chance Law allowing for the expungement of certain types of criminal convictions presented details of the law, also known as House Bill 1482, at Turner Chapel AME Church on Oct. 10. Local attorneys Robert Love and Thomas Essex also participated in the forum. More than 200 people attended the event, which was sponsored by the Fort Wayne Commission on the Social Status of African American Males, along with the IPFW Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs and State of Indiana, in partnership with Fort Wayne Urban League, Fort Wayne NAACP, Fort Wayne Boys & Girls Club and Antioch Missionary Baptist Church. The group held a similar forum earlier that same day on the IPFW campus.
