An individual’s criminal record follows them for their entire life, affecting numerous aspects of their life, including where they can be employed, where they can live, or if they can continue their education. Even if there is no conviction, records of arrest and prosecution remain on a criminal record.
Expungement is the process of removing these details from an individual’s criminal record. Unlike sealing a record (which makes it so that only specific individuals are able to access the records), expungement completely wipes the record clean, as if it never existed.
There are numerous reasons why an individual would wish to have their record expunged, including:
The difference between most expungement cases and a felony expungement case is the grounds on which an individual is eligible. In many ways felony expungements are much more difficult to attain than in other cases.
In the state of Kentucky many felonies are not eligible for expungement. However, if an individual has been charged of a felony but not convicted (either due to a not guilty verdict or the charges being dismissed with prejudice), they could be eligible for expungement. Recently, the Kentucky Senate passed House Bill 40, allowing some Class D felonies to also be expunged and giving many felons a second chance at a clean start.
