  • Former Nelson County woman gets felony expunged

    Barbara “Bobbie” Cook wanted to “freak out” after getting an 11-year-old felony off of her criminal record Thursday morning.

    “This is life-changing,” she said.

    Cook was 19 years old in 2005 when she was convicted of complicity to theft by unlawful taking or disposition from the Speedy Mart on Bloomfield Road. The amount she was convicted of helping to take was more than $300, which made the crime a Class D felony in Kentucky at the time. Cook was sentenced to three years in jail, withheld, and five years probation.
