Expungements

Note: The Kentucky State Police cannot provide legal advice or assistance regarding expungements.

Expungement Certification Process

State law requires a certificate of eligibility be included with a petition for expungement of criminal conviction. Individuals who wish to have their criminal conviction records (charges/cases) expunged must complete the expungement certification process to determine if they are eligible for expungement. An expungement certification is not required to expunge charges/case which were dismissed, or if the person was acquitted, or if felony charges did not result in an indictment.

Felony Expungement

Most Class D felony convictions (with limited exceptions) are eligible for expungement. KRS 431.073 outlines the process for a person to file an application to have his or her conviction vacated and expunged.
