Expunge a Criminal Record in Kentucky
Expungement is a legal process that clears your criminal record and prevents the public from seeing any previous criminal charges. If the charges were dismissed in your case, if you were charged and found not guilty, or if enough time has passed since a conviction appeared on your record, you may be a candidate for record expungement.
In many cases, defendants pay a fine without realizing that they are pleading guilty to a charge. If you pled guilty to a crime, you may now be facing the additional consequences of a conviction. Our Lexington expungement attorneys can review the facts of your case and help expunge a record or remove a conviction on your behalf.
We are experienced in cases involving:
- Drug crimes
- Alcohol offenses
- Driving offenses
- Substance crimes
Depending on the crime, you must wait a certain period before record expungement becomes an option. In some cases, like possession of marijuana convictions, the record may be able to be voided and expunged almost immediately. If you are a first-time offender who has been convicted of a misdemeanor but who does not have any other convictions within five years, you may be eligible for expungement of that misdemeanor charge and conviction. Our attorneys can explore your options and enforce your rights. Any defendant found not guilty, or whose case has been dismissed, is eligible for expungement of that charge.
