Public meetings to be held on Kentucky's new felony expungement law

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Several organizations are partnering to hold public meetings over the next few weeks to explain how Kentucky's new felony expungement law works, according to a news release.

The meetings will take place in the latter part of July and the early part of August in Lexington, Covington, Hazard and Paducah.

The new law allows judges to expunge certain low-level felonies if the applicant has abstained from criminal activity for a period of five years. It was sponsored by Rep. Darryl Owens, with Rep. David Floyd acting as primary co-sponsor. The law was backed by Gov. Matt Bevin. 

The measure takes effect July 15.
