Thousands of Kentuckians have expunged their records since a 2016 law made some low-level offenses eligible to be cleared. Greater Louisville Inc. has endorsed expungement as a way to boost Kentucky's workforce development and economy, but the process is still unaffordable and difficult for some to complete. WFPL's In Conversation talked about record expungement, who is eligible for it and what resources are available for those who qualify. Our guests included Kentucky Department of Public Advocacy Education Branch Manager Melanie Foote, ACLU of Kentucky Field Organizer for Juvenile Justice Keturah Herron, Greater Louisville Inc. Vice President of Government Affairs & Public Policy Iris Wilbur and Legal Aid Society Staff Attorney Jenn Perkins.
