How Expungement Works
Expungement is a legal method of sealing a criminal record. This may make information about arrests and convictions invisible to potential employers, colleges, universities, landlords and more. It can be an effective way to prevent the mistakes you made in the past from interfering with your future.
In Kentucky, many criminal offenses can be expunged from your record, provided all other eligibility requirements are met. This includes not only misdemeanor charges, but as of recently, also some low-level felony charges. Drunk driving charges, drug charges and many other charges may be expunged from your record. Expungement is also an effective means of clearing arrest records, which many people are surprised to learn remain visible even if the arrest did not result in a conviction.
