For this inaugural post on Felony Expungement, let’s start with the two basic questions:


Felony Expungement is a process, newly implemented into law by HB40, that allows Kentuckians convicted of felonies to have their conviction expungement, meaning the conviction is erased from their record and no longer appears on a background check.  Expungement of misdemeanors, or less serious offenses, has long been provided for by Kentucky Law.  Now Felonies, more serious offenses, can also be expunged, allowing thousands of Kentuckians to erase more serious past mistakes from their records!


HB 40 covers the expungement of most Class D Felonies, which are the lowest level of felonies, and carry a penalty of 1-5 years in the state penitentary and a fine of not more than $1000.00.  Class D Felonies now able to be expunged include:
