A Criminal Record Doesn’t Have to Follow you Forever
“Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time.”
We’ve all heard that expression. But anyone who’s ever been involved in a criminal case knows it isn’t that simple. These days, serving a criminal sentence is only the beginning. Once it’s over, people still have to deal with all the lingering consequences that follow: reporting convictions to employers, the denial of state or federal benefits, the loss of civil rights. And on top of it all, there is the stigma that comes from having a criminal record.
There is a Way Out
Thankfully, these consequences don’t have to follow you around forever. Connecticut offers a powerful alternative in the form of the Board of Pardons and Paroles, which has the authority to issue several types of criminal pardons. The most coveted of these is the absolute pardon, which can expunge a person’s Connecticut criminal record.
I Can Help You Pursue Your Pardon
You don’t need a lawyer to pursue a pardon. Anyone who tells you otherwise is being dishonest. You can download the application and fill it out yourself. And when the time comes, you can make all your own arguments about why you should be granted a pardon. That said, in my experience, pardon applications tend to be more successful when they are drafted and argued by a trained, experienced legal professional.
That is where I come in.
