Address the personal issues at the heart of domestic violence

There are times when a family member might push your buttons and get you so upset that you can't think straight. If this anger turns physical, there is a chance that you might end up facing charges for domestic violence. Some people think that this is a minor charge; however, domestic violence is classified as a violent crime.

Homicide cases can lead to 2 types of charges

Homicide detectives have a serious job to do when they are working to determine whether there was a criminal element to a killing or not. Many people don't realize that not all homicides are the same thing. In fact, there are some homicides that aren't criminal matters at all.

Prepare for social events that will involve alcohol

The hot summer days and warm nights are going to give way to cooler air soon. This means that it is the perfect weather for bonfires. For many adults, these social gatherings come with the presence of alcoholic beverages, such as beer. If you are planning on enjoying a drink or two when you are by the fire, make sure that you have a plan to make it home.

Drunk driving penalties are serious in Kentucky

Driving after consuming alcohol is illegal in Kentucky. All drivers should be aware of this already, but it is sometimes tempting to think that you aren't impaired enough for it to impact your ability to drive. What you might not think about is that being caught driving drunk can lead to some very serious legal penalties, even if you think you are able to drive safely.

Your defense strategy must be customized to your case

The criminal justice system is one place that most adults hope they will never have to deal with as a defendant. When charges are levied against you, your first reaction might be disbelief. You need to make sure that you take the time to consider what kinds of strategies you might use to answer the charges. We are here to help you learn about these and make plans for the direction of your case.
