All criminal charges, even sex charges, require a firm defense

When you are facing sex crime charges, your life is affected considerably. These charges come with a huge stigma that society places on you. Even though you have to deal with the societal stigma, you can still count on the criminal justice system to abide by the concept that you are innocent until you are proven guilty. The burden to prove that you are guilty is placed on the prosecution. Your job is to show that a reasonable person shouldn't believe everything the prosecution claimed.

Criminal cases sometimes include the need for help

The criminal justice system takes a very harsh stance against a number of crimes. In the United States, a big emphasis is placed on punishment instead of rehabilitation. This puts people who are facing criminal charges in a hard position. Some people need help to stop the behaviors, but instead of getting that help, they are forced into a situation where they are placed with other people who have committed crimes. This might not help the situation at all. In fact, it can sometimes exacerbate issues that are already present.

Car insurance rates can skyrocket upon DUI convictions

Drunk driving can impact various areas of your life. If you don't lose your driver's license because of the offense, you will likely find that keeping your insurance paid is difficult. One thing that you have going for you is that you live in Kentucky.
