How the Clean Slate Act Could Affect Your News Reporting

PA’s new Clean Slate Act automatically seals all criminal records for people with charges not resulting in convictions and summary offenses and low-level misdemeanors committed by people who have not incurred any other charges within ten years.  How could this affect your coverage, your use of police logs, etc.  How concerned should you be about defamation suits?  Hear from PNA’s Media Law Counsel Melissa Melewsky.

Appropriate for reporters as well as editors.

Registration fee of $10 for PNA and PSNE members.  $20 for non-members.

This webinar is scheduled to begin promptly at 12 noon and will conclude in less than an hour.  Registrants must have both a computer and phone in order to participate.  Gather together in one room and have lunch and learn!

To register, email foundation@pa-news.org or phone (717) 703-3003. Participation instructions will be emailed one to two days before the session.
