Gov. Matt Bevin joined the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, Greater Louisville Inc., Commerce Lexington, state legislators and others in the Capitol Wednesday to express support for legislation to expunge the records of low-level offenders after certain criteria is met to help give people a second chance and get them back into the workforce.
Expungement legislation would allow individuals charged with a single, non-violent Class D (lowest level) Felony to have their record expunged after time is served and a waiting period has passed. Passage of such a bill would responsibly reduce some obstacles that currently limit businesses’ access to over 94,000 Kentuckians who could be eligible for expungement.
