How long does a misdemeanor stay on your record in Connecticut?
When it relates to an adult criminal convictions including
misdemeanors remain a permanent part of an individual's record. It
is possible in some cases to have a misdemeanor removed for
purposes of the convicted person becoming gainfully employed. This
does not mean that the entry is permanently erased, only that its
accessiblility is limited. The removal of the entry would depend
upon the severity of the crime, the time that has expired since the
commission, whether or not the convicted person has other criminal
convictions and/or a history of problems with authorities.
