Criminal investigations depend on the circumstances of the crime

The investigative process is very important in the criminal justice system. Anyone who is accused of committing a crime and has charges levied against him or her will likely have been the subject of some type of investigation. The type of investigation depends on the circumstances of the criminal act.

You have options when you are facing criminal charges

The criminal justice system and the juvenile justice system are two independent entities. While some of the concepts used in one differs from the other, there are many similarities. Whether you are facing a charge or your child is facing one, we can help you evaluate the possible defenses you might launch for the case.

Kentucky's juvenile justice system is a model for others

People who are facing a first-time arrest usually aren't hardened criminals who deserve the proverbial book to be thrown at them. Instead, some of these people need to have someone redirect them back toward a productive life that isn't riddled with crime. This is true for young defendants, including those in the juvenile justice system.

Understand the right to trial by a jury of your peers

One of the rights of some criminal defendants is having a trial before a jury of their peers. Many people think that this Sixth Amendment right is present in all criminal cases, but this isn't the case. Defendants who aren't facing at least six months in prison aren't automatically afforded the right to a jury trial.
