SADO - Informational Session for Friends and Family of the Incarcerated

Time: May 16, 2017
Location: SADO Detroit Office, 645 Griswold Avenue, Suite 3300

The State Appellate Defender Office will host its next Informational Session for Family and Friends of the Incarcerated from 5:30-7:00pm in Detroit.  SADO staff will be on hand to address the process of appealing a conviction and how an appeal is different from the trial or plea proceedings, and will inform attendees about the visiting policies of the MDOC and how to communicate and stay connected with incarcerated loved ones. Specific topics may vary slightly depending on what attendees wish to discuss.  This free session is open to all, including attorneys and professionals. Next sessions include:  August 15, 2017 in Lansing; and December 5, 2017 in Detroit.  Light refreshments will be provided. If you plan to attend, please call 313-256-9833 at least two days in advance to RSVP.
