If you have ever broken the law and been convicted of a crime, the McCracken County Library (McLib) has an important seminar that you may be in interested in. You may be able to get you record expunged - your prior criminal conviction can be sealed, making the records unavailable through the state or Federal repositories.
The seminar takes place at McLib on January 15 from 7-8 pm. This informative talk will be led by Catherine Fuller, staff attorney for Kentucky Legal Aid.
The Expungement clinic will be a short presentation concerning expungement law in Kentucky. Fuller, will answer questions concerning the process and address common issues with the expungement laws in the state. An informational packet will be available at the clinic to assist individuals with the process. Kentucky Legal Aid may be available to assist individuals with the expungement applications. Fuller will include eligibility information in the presentation and contact information for assistance.
Fuller told me that this event is ideal for any individual with questions or concerns with expungements. “Kentucky Legal Aid provides assistance to individuals in the area with representation with expungements and answers any questions concerning expungements. It should be a great event,” she said.
