Determining Eligibility in Vermont
In the state of Vermont, there are a variety of crimes that can be sealed, including:
- Convictions from when you were under the age of 21
- Dismissed charges
- Certain felony offenses, like burglary or grand larceny
- Most misdemeanors, excluding violent crimes, sex offenses, and most driving violations
- Single DUI convictions
- Governor’s pardons, which occur when the governor grants an unconditional pardon for your offenses
In the state of Vermont, federal crimes, most felonies, misdemeanors involving violent crimes, sex offenses, and driving violations, and predicate offenses usually cannot be expunged. However, setting up a consultation with a qualified legal professional is the best way to determine your eligibility for an expungement.
