UNDERSTANDING THE LEGAL AND PRACTICAL DETAILS

OF THE NEW EXPUNGEMENT LAW

 

ATTENDEES WILL RECEIVE 1.0 HOUR OF FREE CLE CREDIT.

 

House Bill 40, passed by the 2016 General Assembly and signed into law by Gov. Matt Bevin, allows judges to expunge certain low-level felonies if the applicant has abstained from criminal activity for a period of five years. HB 40 also makes important changes to the misdemeanor expungement process. Senate Bill 195, passed by the 2017 General Assembly and signed into law by Gov. Bevin, reforms the process for the expungement of juvenile records.

This program will cover the new three-step felony expungement process, eligible felonies, changes to the misdemeanor expungement process, the new juvenile record law, and an update on the number of expungements.
