On February 22, 2022, the San Diego FBA presented Part I of its Two-Part Criminal Legal Skills Series: OSC Petitions and Proceedings. During this webinar, the panelists discussed the nuts and bolts of an OSC petition, including the filing process, the sealing of petitions, discovery, negotiations, contested hearings, and sentencing.

The panelists included the Hon. William Q. Hayes, U.S. District Judge for the Southern District of California; Michelle Pettit, U.S. Attorney’s Office; Elana Fogel, Federal Defenders of San Diego, Inc.; and Ymelda Valenzuela, U.S. Probation Office.

The written materials are available here. A recording of the webinar is available on the San Diego FBA’s MCLE on demand page.

The San Diego FBA thanks the panelists for volunteering their time and sharing their expertise with the community. The San Diego FBA also thanks President Dylan Aste, Vice President of Legal Education Kim Gregg, and the members of the legal education committee—Vivian Sapthavee, Leah Gonzales, Elana Fogel, Zandra Lopez, Ben Cheeks, and Hector Tamayo—for organizing this event.
