As a brief overview, the following requirements exist for expungement purposes. To have your class D felony expunged a hearing will be had to determine if:
- 5 years or more have passed since the completion of your felony sentence, or 5 years or more have passed since the successful completion of your probation.
- And lastly, it must be determined whether or not you have any other felonies, and you have no misdemeanors or violations since the date of the felony you are seeking to have expunged.
Class D Felonies that do not qualify for expungement:
Take Note: Certain felonies are not eligible for expungement under Kentucky’s new law, a few examples of felonies that don’t qualify are those….
