I had a misdemeanor charge for possession of marijuana. I'm eligible for expungement but... I don't know what agencies to include on the expungement form. I'v been putting this off too long, and the people at the courthouse say they can't tell me.

A: The clerks have a set of agencies which are written down and suggested for you. Depending on the arresting agency, say Louisville Police Department, LMPD. LMDC, KSP and AOC and CHFS. They don't normally include KSP, because they run the epungements, but I do.

I also place in the area "any other entity that this order is presented to and expungement demanded." This is because of all the little privately held companies that promulgate the database and who you may run into further down the line.
