Public hearing to be held on “Clean Slate” bill that would help convicts

News

There is a push Friday to pass legislation that would help out thousands of Connecticut convicts.

A public hearing will be held on the “Clean Slate” bill at 10 a.m. in Hartford in front of the Judiciary Committee.

The legislation would erase the criminal records of people after they’re released from prison but they would also have to stay crime-free.

The bill also includes ending solitary confinement in prison.
