We Can Assist With DUI Charges
If you are convicted or you plead guilty after being cited for a DUI in Kentucky, you can face several consequences, including jail time, fines and license suspension. Working with a criminal lawyer provides you help with navigating the justice system and determining how you wish to proceed in your case. If you feel you have been wrongfully accused, then a lawyer might help you to fight the charges. Even if you failed the breathalyzer or field sobriety test, you might still have a defense for your case in some situations.
Fighting for Your Rights in Drug Offense Cases
There are different levels of drug offenses that lead to different punishments. The type of drug as well as how much of it you have on you play a significant role in the seriousness of the charge, including whether you face possession or dealing charges. Kentucky has yet to legalize recreational or medical marijuana, so even if you only had a small amount in your possession, you might face charges.
