"Am I Eligible?"

This year, House Bill 40 was signed into law, raising the "ceiling" on what kind of criminal convictions can be expunged from a citizen's record. Previously, only citizens convicted of a misdemeanor could expunge their criminal record. Thanks to HB 40, now many Class D felonies can be stricken from an individual's record, as well.

The state of Kentucky does not allow all criminal convictions to be expunged. While recent laws have expanded on which kinds of convictions can qualify, there are still certain offenses that cannot be removed from a citizen's record.

In Kentucky, a past conviction cannot be expunged if:

  • The offense involved children
  • The offense was sexual in nature
  • The offense was convicted on the federal level
  • The offense took place out of state
  • The person has more multiple felony convictions

If your circumstances do not fall into one of the categories listed above, you could be eligible for expungement. Our legal team can help with make sure the application is a strong as possible. We’ll be with you in the courtroom to help convince the Court that granting the application is the right thing to do. From the necessary background checks to the final court date, our firm is ready to ensure that the state of Kentucky gives you every consideration you deserve.
