NEWPORT — Attorney General TJ Donovan and Essex County State’s Attorney Vincent Illuzzi will host a free expungement clinic on Friday, January 14.
Appointments will be available from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Expungements wipe from your record specific convictions and dismissed charges after a certain period of time has passed.
Under Vermont law, many misdemeanors, 14 different felony offenses, and all dismissed charges can be expunged.
The free clinic will focus on expunging criminal charges and convictions from Grand Isle, Orange, and Essex counties and will be open to the public by appointment.
“Although we have held previous expungement clinics, and routinely encourage qualified individuals to seek expungement of eligible convictions, I am pleased to work with the Attorney General‘s office to keep this opportunity front and center for those who may benefit from expungement of older convictions,” said Vincent Illuzzi, Essex County State’s Attorney.
Attorneys from the Attorney General’s Office will offer free assistance with petitions for Vermont-specific “qualifying” criminal convictions and dismissed charges.
Vermonters should schedule appointments in advance by calling the Attorney General’s Office’s expungement clinic line at 802-828-0033 by January 11, 2022.
