Well it looks like House Bill 64 has passed the House of Representatives and is now in the Senate. HB 64 is kind of a modified version of House Bill 47. It's a Class D felony Expungement bill with modifications. It's not a blanket expungment for Class D felons. Amendments have been made to violent class D felons and those who have hurt children. There are are also other amendment that have been made. It looks good as long as they don't exclude Class D felons who have gotten misdemeanors in the last few years. If they don't do that, it would seem that even if you had a parking ticket or speeding ticket in the last few years, you would be disqualified. I think there is an amendment to include multiple charges that the authority's threw on during the same incident. There are other amendments in there also. Contact the Senate judiciary Committee and get them to vote on and pass this Bill. Don't allow them to let this bill die or be denied. And let's get them to take action now, not months or years from now.

Finally someone who understands, I have a job now buts it’s a dead end job but at least its a job, lets just say it pays most of the bills but if something tears up I am done but I am thankful for the job I have. Thanks for understanding. Most people want to judge us. I paid the price for my mistakes and continue to, I think I paid enough for them.

It is crucial to emphasize that for us Americans, enjoyment of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness are inalienable rights. The decency of our national character reveals willingness to forgive criminals who have completed sentenced punishment, which is also a central ethic of Christianity. Yet despite these values so deeply embedded in our society, we continue to retain archaic laws that effectively waive such human rights and violate a most fundamental Christian mandate.
Nor should we overlook the fact that some Americans are more likely to be charged with and convicted for crime than others, depending on identified extraneous factors including celebrity status and race. While such unfairness needs to be addressed separately, it certainly figures in as a major contributing factor to the broader problem of the injustice of depriving citizens of their rights.

There are at least 5.85 million felons living in the United States. That statistic is from 2010, the number has grown exponentially. The United States has the highest number of incarcerated people in the world. We are responsible for 25% of the world’s incarcerated people, yet we have 5% of the world’s population. It's real easy to get a felony in the United States. Lots of prisons are privately owned now, and not run by the state anymore. Some of the stipulations by those companies that take over the department of corrections are: To keep the facility at 90% capacity. That means that they need a constant flow of felons to occupy those cells. Gotta keep adding felons or creating them. For anyone who needs more proof Google it. It’s out there.

Talking about it on here helps, but it won't get the law changed. The bill passed the house by an overwhelming margin. Now the Kentucky Senate has to decide whether to take it to a vote or not. If not it will die and not happen. I talked with my state representative this week, he said EVERY member of the Kentucky State Senate needs to be contacted. When contacting them you have to explain your situation and how this Class D felony has affected your lives. That's the only way to get them to turn this bill to a law.
Here is their contact info
