- In Kentucky, a person who has been charged and found guilty of a criminal offense or whose charges have been dismissed may make a motion to have the charges expunged from his/her record. (KRS 431.076 – 431.078)
- If the charges were dismissed, a motion to expunge should be filed with the court 60 days after the dismissal of your charges.
- If you plead guilty to a misdemeanor, a motion to expunge can be filed 5 years after your guilty plea.
What charges can be expunged?
- Only misdemeanor offenses may be expunged, with the exception of some felony drug offenses that are potentially eligible for expungment or felonies that were disposed of through the pre-trial diversion program.
