I'm a felon but I'm from Ohio where felons are able to get their felony expunged. I got my felony in Ky but they don't allow felony expungement? Why is that? If you feel felons should at least have a chance for expungement then leave your name. This is a petition that will be sent to Governor Beshear. Please participate and leave a REAL name, the more signatures the better the chance of felons getting thought of for expungements.
Yeah I bet

Do you really think anyone would leave their real name on here? I didnt see your real name on here, yet, you're asking others to do it. Most people feel "if you don't know Im a felon then why should I make it public knowledge?"
I will say this much: I think if it wasnt a crime of extreme violence, a crime against a child, or charge of some absolutely dispicable act then there should be an expungement of the record. Felonies can keep you from getting hired, keep you from certain rentals, and make life more difficult in many ways. Of course, that should have been thought about before the crime took place. However, there are people who were charged with felonies where there was no proof the act was committed but the judge would only dismiss the case without prejudice.. meaning someone could re-file the case again in the future. This leaves the felony charge on a record even though there was never any proof a felony took place.

"The Commonwealth of KY is government based on the common consent of the people. The word commonwealth in this context refers to the common "wealth" or welfare of the public." To me, that just says Ky does things the way they choose to do things. They must feel any felony they choose should be left on the record to protect the people.

I do know of some who have had a felony charge expunged, but, it wasnt a charge of violence, a charge involving a child, or a charge of anything considered to be absolutely dispicable.

Good luck in your fight against the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

It don't matter if I put my name up but u insist my name is Frank T. I'm, basically, starting a petition against felons not being able to get there record expunged. I talk to 7 lawyers the other day, with each one saying there's no statue in the law book stating felons are able to get there record expunged unless they were aquitted or dismiss without prejudice. to my knowledg, when aquitted, meaning not guilty, the charge should not be left on your record in the first place. THat's like saying when O.J. was aquitted, he was still label and his record said he's still a felon. Ur right Ky makes there own laws but still should coincide with all the other states. Ohio allows felon expungement, but soon u cross the bridge everything changes. I thought the states of America were united? It should be called D.S.A.(Divided Stated of America)

Let me know who and how. Really let me know how they got there felony expunged. My charge was felony possession, nothing to do with violence, chidren, or anything dispicable.

I have seen cases in Mason County expunged. Who they are isn't important and a breach of confidentiality.
However, it may also be due to the fact of whether they were persistent felony offenders and how long it has been since the crime took place. Most times, if they are persistent felony offenders it won't be removed. Also, if it hasn't been very long since the crime was committed, or if the defendent has been in even more trouble since the crime... they won't expunge it.
I agree it should be called "Divided States of America." They take more and more away from us each and everyday!
The only advice I can give you is, if you are able to hire an attorney, you should contact Erik Wilbekin. I believe he is an attorney in Cincinnati Ohio that also has cases in KY.(He seems to be the type of person who doesn't like how things are done in the Commonwealth.) If you can not hire an attorney, talk with Tom Griffiths of the public advocacy office in Maysville KY. Tell them your situation and see if they have any advice for you. Numbers can be found online. Not allowed to post them here.
As far as your petition.. honestly.. you would be better off going door to door for signatures than to try to get names online.
I agree with what you are trying to do but I can't see people willing to put their name on this site. If you are willing to put the work in for the cause, then you could visit local courthouses and get signatures of defendents. They would agree with you more than the general public.
This is only friendly advice. I'm not trying to put you down for what you are looking to accomplish. Again, best wishes!

Ronin... you are so silly. You have a comment about everything. LMAO.

USA... yes the best advice you can give a person is dont do the crime.. however you better start teaching law to kids in the first grade so they dont make the same mistakes as others.

As humans we are not perfect and we make mistakes. It would be an easy life if we could just tell them "dont do this" and they listen. But, even as children we are rebellious and curious.

Are you the type of person who feels... if you make a mistake you don't deserve a second chance? Doesn't matter if it was stealing a piece of gum as a child or selling drugs as an adult, with age comes wisdom... and Im sure this person is wiser now from the lesson learned from a mistake. People change... and if progression has been shown then I think they deserve a second chance.

People are so quick to judge someone else. You should evaluate your own life before commentting about someone elses. I have yet to meet a perfect human being.

I would like to sign your petition, Frank. I am a felon myself from a complicity charge, I did not commit the crime but I had knowledge of it and since I didn't report it I was charged and received 3yrs probation and it has been 5yrs since I received my "death sentence".I'm not the same person that I was 5yrs ago. I have 2 children now that Im trying to give a better life. Im going to school and would like to go for a degree in the medical field, but because of my felony I doubt I'll be hired. Shit, I can't even get a job at Wal-Mart! Someone told me that I have a good chance of getting it expunged from my record and my grandparents said that they would pay for any expenses I might incur in my "quest", but I don't even know where to begin. So with that said, I think what you are trying to do is a great service to our fellow felons and,yes, I will post my name; I'm not ashamed.

Even if your charged and not convicted it stays on your record. It did mine and I couldn't get a job or anything and finally got it expunged.

Ronin makes an ass out of himself.
I agree with you. I went through the process just the same but I wasn't a felon as long as you were. That was then and now i'm a different person. Your right, people do change and Ronin can go somewhere and suck some ass!
