Excerpts from the website:

All public defender offices help with expungement. In order to get free expungement help from a public defender, you must first fill out the paperwork here.

If you don't want to work with an attorney but can't afford the expungement fees, use this website to generate a form you can use to request that your fees be waived

Default Sb 57 - 2019

Ky. Legislature Passes Bill Expanding Felony Expungement Law

The Kentucky legislature has voted to expand the state’s law that allows people to clear some Class D felonies from their records after a five-year waiting period.

Under current law, people who have been convicted of one of 61 Class D felonies can have their criminal records cleared once they complete their sentences, wait five years and pay a $500 fee.

Senate Bill 57 expands the policy to other non-violent, non-sexual Class D felonies and lowers the fee to $250.

The article doesn't list the Statute numbers / offenses that have been added to the list, so....I looked up SB 57. Here is the text of the bill as it sits on Bevin's desk waiting on his signature:

https://apps.legislature.ky.gov/recorddocuments/bill/19RS/sb57/bill.pdf

From SB 57, here are the Statute numbers of offenses that are expungable:

Quote:
Class D felony violation of KRS:
17.175, 186.990, 194A.505,

5194B.505, 217.181, 217.207, 217.208,

218A.140, 218A.1415, 218A.1416,

6218A.1417, 218A.1418, 218A.1423,

218A.1439, 218A.282, 218A.284, 7218A.286,

218A.320, 218A.322, 218A.324, 218A.500,

244.165, 286.11-057, 8304.47-025, 324.990,

365.241, 434.155, 434.675, 434.850, 434.872,

511.040, 9512.020, 514.030, 514.040, 514.050,

514.060, 514.065, 514.070, 514.080, 10514.090,

514.100, 514.110, 514.120, 514.140, 514.150,

514.160, 516.030, 11516.060, 516.090, 516.108,

517.120, 518.040, 522.040, 524.100, 525.113,

12526.020, 526.030, 528.020, 528.040, 528.050,

530.010, or 530.050
I found all those numbers, periods and commas difficult to read, so I hope I've made it easier by adding an extra space between Statute numbers, shortening the sentences and alternating text color

If you do not know the Statute number under which you were convicted, you can look it up below. If you need a hand looking up your Statute, please send me a private message. I'll be glad to take a look

The language in the bill in bold are the new added parts. So here's where it doesn't make any sense at all -- the only added statute is 218A.500 which is:
Quote:
218A.500 Definitions for KRS 218A.500 and 218A.510 -- Unlawful practices --
Substance abuse treatment outreach program -- Informing peace officer about
presence of needles or other sharp objects before search -- Penalties.
It lists all definitions of paraphernalia. And the last line of said statute is: (7) Any person who violates any provision of this section shall be guilty of a Class A misdemeanor.
