Case Caption: Molloy v. Government of the Virgin IslandsCase Number: SCT-CIV-2019-0004Date: 08/17/2022Author: Swan, Ive Arlington Citation: 2022 VI 16Summary: In an appeal from the Superior Court’s denial of a petition to expunge a convicted felon’s criminal record, the gubernatorial pardon that the individual received fails to eradicate his criminal record; therefore, he does not fall within the provisions of the Virgin Islands expungement statute, which specifically states that the Superior Court may exercise its discretion to expunge a petitioner’s record provided the applicant was not convicted of a crime. As discussed in the present opinion, the Superior Court’s decision holding that this individual lacked the qualification to have his criminal record of convictions for second degree murder and possession of a dangerous weapon expunged pursuant to the Virgin Islands expungement statute, is affirmed.Attachment: Open Document or Opinion
