Clean Up Your Criminal Record

If you have a criminal record then you know it may be difficult to find a job or employment with those on your background check.  If you had troubles in Kentucky, you may be eligible for expungment in order to clean that record.

Under Kentucky law, if a case was dismissed against you, then you are eligible for expungment any time 60 days after the dismissal.  This can be for misdemeanors or felonies and for dismissal or not guilty findings.

If you were convicted of a misdemeanor, you should be eligible for expungment 5 years after the sentence.  Often ther eis a 1 or 2 year probated sentence on misdemeanors, so you may have to wait 7 years.  There can be no other convictions during that time.

Even if you were convicted of one of many class D felonies, y ou also may be eligible for expungment 5 years after the sentence.  Remember, if you participated in the felony diversion program, this is not a conviction, but a dismissal.

But for very few employers (i.e. FBI, CIA), once expunged the individual is not required to acknowledge anything about the arrest, dismissal, or conviction of the offense.

If you were convicted in Kentucky, you can find out if eligible by clicking this link and ordering a criminal background check. A check is $20 and the certified (which is necessary to file expungement) is $40.

You should hire an attorney to file expungement paperwork with your local county.  Contact Michael Bouldin at [email protected] or call 859-581-6453 (581-MIKE) for expungements in Northern Kentucky.
