About Expungements in Kentucky
In certain circumstances, it is possible to have your criminal record erased,
or expunged. Serious or violent crimes are not typically eligible for
expungement, but less serious offenses often are.
Felonies, including those related to theft and drugs, could potentially
be expunged if the individual was not convicted, the felony crime was
reduced to a misdemeanor, or the individual completed a class D felony
pretrial diversion program.
Misdemeanors are typically much easier to expunge from a criminal record.
In the state of Kentucky, misdemeanors and violations may be expunged
unless the individual in question is:
- Currently on probation
- Facing a pending violation, misdemeanor, or felony
- Charged with an offense that is subject to enhancement for subsequent offense
Certain crimes, including sex crimes and offenses committed against children,
are never eligible for expungement in Kentucky.
