Good news from the Senate

stivers

It looks like we may be getting some movement in the near future on expungement, and I am told that the final bill has not been as weakened as we all may have worried. While this article  predicted that we would hear something last week, I suspect that next week may be more likely. If you have ANY time, please contact Senate President Stivers, who will likely be authoring the new law. His contact information is here. I know that as a resident of Manchester, Senator Stivers has seen firsthand the damage that felony-first prosecution has had on our communities. He has seen the pain that drug addiction has caused and the further pain that a felony conviction causes when it disqualifies good people from good jobs.

Please, if you have any interest in this passing, reach out to him this weekend. Class D expungement in Kentucky is about more than getting back to work. It is about restoring gun rights, restoring voting rights, and restoring jury duty. For decades we have case people who have made a minor mistake aside. Now we have the opportunity to fix that. I hope our Senate gets it right the first time, because there may not be a second one.
