You heard right -- the law in Kentucky has undergone a major change and starting on July 15, 2016, some 61 felonies will be eligible for expungement if certain criteria are met.
Many Kentuckians have been hoping for this change for years, and it has taken a long time for our legislature to pass this bill through both houses, but it finally happened -- and many people can get their lives back!
This means they will now be able to find employment, regain their right to vote, and finally feel like citizens again putting their ugly past behind them.
In addition, the misdemeanor expungement law is getting a face-lift, which we will briefly discuss.
So read on to learn more.
