Connecticut Criminal Pardon Lawyer

Pardons/Expungement

If you have a conviction on your record for a misdemeanor or a felony in Connecticut, you might be eligible for an absolute (full) pardon, provided certain criteria are met. The criteria, according to the Connecticut Board of Pardons & Paroles, includes:

  • You must not be on parole, probation or another form of supervised release.
  • If you seek a pardon for a misdemeanor conviction, at least three years must have elapsed from the date of your conviction.
  • If you seek to erase a felony conviction, at least five years must have elapsed from the date of your conviction.

Individuals may apply for a provisional pardon any time after their conviction, including individuals currently on supervised release.

Should You Apply for a Full or Provisional Pardon?

There are two key differences between full and provisional pardons that are important to understand:

  1. Full pardon: A full pardon will completely erase your criminal record. .
  2. Provisional pardon: A provisional pardon will not erase your criminal history and is used primarily for employment purposes. When a provisional pardon is issued, it serves to notify employers or licensing agencies that you cannot be denied employment or professional licensure due to your conviction. You may apply for a provisional pardon any time after a conviction.
