Conn. Gen. Stat. ยง 54-95c
Effective October 1, 2021

Survivors may seek to vacate the judgment of conviction for any misdemeanor offense, or class C, D, or E felony, or any unclassified felony offense carrying a term of imprisonment under 10 years that “was a result” of their trafficking experience.

There is no time limitation during which survivors must file for this relief. A hearing is only required if the prosecution has notice and objects to the motion.

If the survivors’ crime involved a victim, Connecticut law requires that the survivor “send notice by registered or certified mail on a form prescribed by the Office of the Chief Court Administrator” to that victim, informing them of the survivor’s application to vacate their conviction.

If successful, survivors are not permitted to then seek compensation for a wrongful arrest of the vacated conviction(s).
