FRAKNFORT, Ky. (AP) - Legal aid groups have scheduled four information sessions for people to learn about Kentucky’s new felony expungement law.

The sessions are scheduled for July 27 at 6 p.m. at the Kentucky Career Center in Covington, July 28 at 5 p.m. at the Perry County Public Library in Hazard, Aug. 2 at 6 p.m. at the Lexington Public Library in Lexington and Aug. 6 at noon at the McCracken County Public Library in Paducah.

The sessions are sponsored by the Kentucky Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the Department of Public Advocacy and Clean Slate Kentucky.

The law allows people convicted of certain felonies to have their convictions vacated. Not all felonies are eligible. People must wait five years after the completion of their sentence and not have any pending charges. The filing fee is $500.
