What is Connecticut’s Clean Slate law?

Clean Slate is a Connecticut law that allows for the erasure of criminal records of people who remain crime-free for an extended period. More facts

Who is Affected?

People with misdemeanors and lower-level felony records will be eligible after seven and ten years, respectively. Charges for sex, family violence, and firearms are not eligible.

For eligible misdemeanors, seven years before today was 6/12/2017.

For eligible felonies, ten years before today was 6/13/2014.

How long will it take?

At this time, it is not known how long it will take the State of Connecticut to erase eligible convictions. Clean Slate was supposed to be implemented on January 1, 2023, however there has been a delay in implementation so currently the only convictions erased are those that qualified for erasure under the cannabis expungement law. See the State’s cannabis conviction erasure site for more information.
