"For the new nonprofit Redeemed which she founded and is CEO, Deón combined her lawyering and authoring skills to connect individuals with past convictions and creative writers. The purpose is to produce personal statements, which can be used in a petition for expungement by withdrawing guilty or no-contest pleas or guilty verdicts and entering not guilty pleas to dismiss those convictions. The individual will no longer be considered “convicted” of the offense as the record will show a dismissal. Redeemed will also aim to get qualified clients Certificates of Rehabilitation, which can lead to pardons by the governor."
