No Pardon Required in Kentucky

Court officials and judges in Louisville, Kentucky are unhappy with a state court policy that has resulted in the destruction of all paper and electronic prosecution records for misdemeanors over 5 years old, the Courier Journal reports. The policy does not apply to felony records.

Opponents of the policy warn that it hampers prosecution of habitual offenders and that it has resulted in the destruction of records of many domestic violence prosecutions.
