Command respect when you invoke your right to remain silent

You have the right to remain silent if you are being questioned in relation to a crime. You can invoke this right whenever you feel the need if you are dealing with law enforcement officers. There are a few points that you need to remember if you are ever put in a position where you might want to do this.

Don't try to hide from criminal charges; they do catch up to you

Nobody wants to think about having to face felony charges over the holidays. This is one reason why many people try their best to stay on the right side of the law toward the end of the year. Still, there are some circumstances that are out of your control. If you are one of the people who finds yourself fighting for your freedom right now, you need to know that you do have someone on your side. We are here to help you find out what options you have to present a defense.

Impaired driving in Kentucky can land you in jail

The holiday season is here, which means that adults are probably going to have invitations to office Christmas parties and other festive occasions. If you are planning on attending any of these, you need to properly prepare so that you don't have to face the decision about whether you are sober enough to drive or not. Typically, it is best to plan for a ride home than it is to face a drunk driving charge.

Don't get caught driving drunk this holiday season

If you are planning on heading out to the local pubs or other parties for football, basketball or the holiday festivities, you need to make sure that you have transportation back home if you plan on drinking a few. There are some instances in which you might not be able to plan in advance. We understand that things happen that you can't control, such as a designated driver backing out or even inadvertently having one sip of alcohol.

Try not to bank on one strategy in criminal defense cases

A criminal case requires you to spend a lot of time preparing for a trial. Many defendants automatically assume that they will be able to work out a plea deal if they do acknowledge that they did the crime. While this is a possibility, there is another facet of criminal justice that you need to think about.
