In the 2011-2012 Session of the Indiana General Assembly, Public Law 69-2012 was passed allowing D felons to reduce their past mistakes and have them entered as Class A Misdemeanors. (See new I.C. s 35-50-2-7).

1. The offense cannot be of a sexual or violent nature (as defined in I.C. 11-8-8-5);
2. The offense did not result in bodily injury to another person;
3. The offense did not involve perjury or official misconduct.
4. At least three (3) years must have passed since the sentence was completed (if any);
