SADO Hosts Informational Session for Friends and Family

Next Session: December 5, 2017 in Detroit

Join SADO for an Informational Session on what to expect after a loved one is convicted of a crime and sentenced to the Michigan Department of Corrections. 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 on the visiting policies of the MDOC, how to communicate and stay connected with your incarcerated loved ones, and more.

December 5, 2017, Tuesday, in Detroit at 5:30 pm
