In order to apply for a CT Pardon, please read below for eligibility and steps.


To be eligible for a pardon, the following must apply:

You may apply to the Pardons Board for an Absolute Pardon, which is an absolute erasure of your criminal record, THREE (3) YEARS after the date of disposition of your most recent MISDEMEANOR conviction and FIVE (5) YEARS after the date of disposition of your most recent FELONY conviction.

If you have a case that was “nolled,” you are not eligible to apply for any type of pardon until the nolle has cleared. A nolle remains for a period of thirteen (13) months after the date of disposition by the court.

Additionally, you cannot be on any form of supervision when applying for an Absolute Pardon, have any pending charges or open cases in any other jurisdiction (state or federal).

PLEASE NOTE: You cannot apply for erasure of one offense and not another. Only your entire criminal history will be considered for a full pardon.

CT Pardon Process and Instructions:

Determine if you are eligible for a pardon (See above).You will be provided with a copy of the Frequently Asked Questions section of the BOPP Pardon Application during your first visit with our office.

Obtain all documents highlighted in a handout you will be provided with. We will go over this handout, in detail with you, during your first visit with us.

Compile any additional documents you wish to include with your Absolute Pardon Application. Please make sure documents don’t have extensive formatting and special symbols. This will be outlined and explained during your visit with us.

Ensure all documents you will be submitting with your Absolute Pardon Application are in one of the following formats: .jpeg, .pdf or .png. Again, we will ensure all documents are formatted properly.

Apply for an Absolute Pardon (which will be handled by our representatives).

IMPORTANT NOTES from the State of CT:

Once you begin your application, you will have six (6) months to complete it electronically.

Applications are processed continuously on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to the high volume of applications, applications will not be accepted in person.

All applicants deemed eligible for Absolute Pardon review will be contacted for a phone interview.

The State Police may not have every criminal conviction. If you were convicted of crimes that are not listed on the criminal history sheet, you must explain those convictions in your application. You are required to disclose out of state and Federal convictions as well.

Some motor vehicle convictions will affect your criminal record. This is especially true of Reckless Driving, DUI and DWI type offenses.

If you do not disclose a conviction in your application and it is later discovered by the Pardons Board, after you have been granted a pardon, your pardon may be revoked and you may be prosecuted for perjury.
