Cobb Second Chance Desk


Cobb judicial leaders, including Cobb District Attorney Flynn D. Broady Jr., Cobb Circuit Defender Randy Harris, Cobb Solicitor General Barry E. Morgan, and the Cobb Judicial Circuit, in partnership with the Georgia Justice Project (GJP), have opened a record-restriction help desk for the community. The Cobb Second Chance Desk will assist eligible individuals with clearing their record as Georgia law allows.

“This is justice in action,” DA Broady said. “Removing barriers that keep nonviolent people from being productive members of society benefits everyone.”

Housed in the Cobb Circuit Defender’s Office, the desk will be staffed by GJP attorneys and the Cobb Circuit Defender’s Office. The desk was opened to the public on Friday, June 25 with online appointments starting Monday, June 21.

“The Justice Project helps many Georgians each year with their criminal record, but we can’t do this work alone, and we do so with strong partnership support,” says Doug Ammar, Executive Director of Georgia Justice Project. “Since 4.3

million people have a Georgia criminal history, we need to find creative ways to collaborate with our local institutions to serve as many Georgians as possible. We appreciate District Attorney Broady and Solicitor Morgan for joining us in this effort.” For more information on the desk, go to: www.cobbsecondchancedesk.com

Georgia Justice Project has served Georgians who have been impacted by the criminal justice system for almost 35 years. Learn more at www.GJP.org
