Title 13 : Crimes and Criminal Procedure

Chapter 231 : Uniform Collateral Consequences of Conviction

(Cite as: 13 V.S.A. § 8008)
  • § 8008. Decision to disqualify

    In deciding whether to impose a discretionary disqualification, a decision-maker shall undertake an individualized assessment to determine whether the benefit or opportunity at issue should be denied the individual. In making that decision, the decision-maker may consider, if substantially related to the benefit or opportunity at issue, the particular facts and circumstances involved in the offense and the essential elements of the offense. A conviction itself may not be considered except as having established the elements of the offense. The decision-maker shall also consider other relevant information, including the effect on third parties of granting the benefit or opportunity and whether the individual has been granted relief such as an order of limited relief or a certificate of restoration of rights. (Added 2013, No. 181 (Adj. Sess.), § 1, eff. Jan. 1, 2016.)
