Have crimes you committed many years ago kept you from achieving your goals?

Past charges and criminal records can prevent many Vermonters from getting the job they want, or getting help with housing or education. Some charges (like some DUIs) can be sealed – which means only government officials and law enforcement can see them. It also helps those who are parents engage more with their children’s education.
