A bill to allow people to have some felony convictions expunged from the
records was passed by the Kentucky house on Friday morning January 15th by
a vote of 80-11. The bill would allow people who have completed their
sentences and had a clean record for at least 5 years to ask the courts to
expunge most Class D felony other than sexual offences from the record.
Those voting against the bill cited a list of class D felony which could be
expunged under this legislation including arson in the third and fourth
degree, burglary, fetal homicide, intimidating a witness and reckless
homicide assault. News from the Courier-Journal. www.courier-journal.com.
