How can I get a guilty conviction expunged as a college student in Connecticut?
If you’re a college student and you somehow ended up having to plead guilty to something, or you were found guilty of something, and you want to get an expungement, you generally have to wait at least five years from the date of the conviction. You also, for the most part, need to not have any other convictions as well. What you’re trying to show the state of Connecticut is that you had a slip-up, whether it was a misdemeanor or felony. If the circumstances are such that, after five years,the Board of Pardons doesn’t think it’s something you should have to carry for the rest of your life, they will, after the application’s filled out and all the information is provided, go to the governor with that and see if that will get you a pardon.
In general, you have to wait at least five years from the date of any conviction to proceed forward with an expungement. I have done some expungements. They are labor-intensive and time-intensive. They do take time, so if this is something that you want to talk about, please give me a call right away.
