Julie had turned her life around. However, in the “before years”, her life was filled with bad decisions and legal consequences. Julie had a criminal record with 32 counts against her, most of them misdemeanors plus two felonies. She was a new person but could not rent a decent apartment with her mother and could not find a career job. Access Justice was her last hope, after many previous attempts to file for expungements. The attorney who met with her decided to be the one to make a difference. He did more than process all the needed filings. He attended court hearing in multiple Kentucky counties where the past offenses were committed. The process took almost a year. The final step was to ask for expungement of a felony that, according to the law, was not expungeable unless so ordered by a judge. The judge asked why she thought she deserved a positive ruling when many others have not received it. She replied, “I don’t deserve it. I am a sinner and only renewed by the grace of Jesus.” He was touched by her humility and awarded the expungement. Now Julie has a good job in a new city and hope for a future.
