SOUTH ROYALTON, Vt. (AP) — The Vermont Law School will host an event to help people with misdemeanor marijuana possession charges have their record expunged.
Windsor County State’s Attorney David Cahill and the law school’s Center for Justice Reform will help individuals complete petitions for expungement at the event in South Royalton Saturday morning. The $90 filing fee will be covered by a grant from the Pennywise Foundation.
Robert Sand, the center’s director, said that while the event may not have a large turnout it is an important step to make Vermonters aware that expungement is an option.
Once a charge is expunged from an individual’s record it will be as if it never occurred under Vermont law.
