For starters, what is an expungement? An expungement is the legal process where an arrest, charge, or conviction are completely erased from your record. In Kentucky, if you do not ask for an expungement after the allotted time, the crime will stay on your criminal history, meaning that any time your background is checked, the conviction will show up. This can potentially hurt job opportunities, school or education opportunities, and even some government assistance programs. The process of Expungements gives you a clean slate.
Convictions of any kind can carry harsh penalties in Kentucky, but they never have to result in long-term damages to your record. A criminal offense can affect your car insurance and employability, but luckily there are options out there to keep this from happening.
