Kentucky's Governor earlier this week signed into law Kentucky's first felony expungement statute. This new law permits individuals to petition the Court in which they were convicted for expungement of their felony record. The statute is limited to Class D felonies only (which includes 61 different laws in Kentucky) and may be filed by a person no sooner than five years after completion of the person's sentence or five years after the successful completion of the person's probation, whichever occurs later.
