In September, Governor Newsom signed Assembly Bill 1869, which repeals 23 criminal fees and eliminates all outstanding debt related to those fees. The law goes into effect July 1, 2021, but actions can be taken immediately to help people who have been charged these fees.
This free MCLE training will give an overview of the relief provided under this new law, and include presentations from a public defender about how to navigate new and existing fees ordered by the court and a legal service provider about what to do about outstanding fees between now and July 1, 2021.
