Not sure if I should go this route regarding confidentiality. here goes. I am seeking to know if I have a listed felony record dating back to crimes committed back in 1963?

Lawyer's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I was considered a juvenile in the state of ct back then as law mandated such until reaching the age of 21.........i was 20 i was sent to a reform school for boys

Lawyer's Assistant: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Criminal Law Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?

Hello and thanks for requesting me,

I would have no way to check your Connecticut record as lawyers here can't be retained and I don't have access to the Connecticut data base.

Juvenile records in your state are confidential for most purposes unless there is a Superior court order. The exceptions are listed in this statute in Subsection(b)

Juvenile adjudications are not convictions and if an application only asks about convictions, would not have to be disclosed. I suspect that whether or not you must disclose your juvenile adjudication is behind your question. If so, tell me what you're applying for and give me the wording of the question and I can expand this answer.
