The law of terroristic threats in Kentucky

Terrorism and the threat of terrorism have once again been making headlines internationally. But in the legal sense, the concept of terrorism is not something confined to foreigners in faraway lands. In fact, Kentucky law recognizes the act of terrorizing someone else as a crime in this state.

Is a criminal charge dropped if police don't read Miranda rights?

Like most people who watch television on a regular basis, you probably know and can recite the warnings police read when placing someone under arrest that begin: "You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law."

What are the consequences of a second Kentucky DUI conviction?

The consequences of a conviction for driving in Kentucky while under the influence of alcohol or other intoxicants can have an effect on your life for years after the case is over. The criminal record associated with a misdemeanor or felony drunk driving charge conviction can hurt your ability to get or keep a job, and it can result in increased auto insurance rates. It can also affect the penalties a court may impose for a subsequent drunk driving offense.
