Victims may recant statements, but that doesn't drop the charge

Domestic violence charges can stem from incidents that weren't necessarily criminal acts. This is because there is a chance that the victim embellished what happened in their statement to the police officers or investigators. Unfortunately, this isn't going to make it any easier for you if you're facing these charges.

A civil and a criminal case can stem from 1 event

When you're charged with a criminal case that involves an injury to another person, there is a chance that you'll have to face more than one court case. This is because the authorities can charge you with a criminal act and the victims of the incident can file a civil claim against you.

The matter of consent in sex-related criminal charges

Sex-related crimes in Kentucky have a host of conditions that must be met before a person can face a conviction. Understanding some of the ins and outs of these laws is beneficial because it can help you avoid facing situations in which you may be charged with a crime. If you're already facing a charge, knowing these may help you as you set your defense strategy.

Securing your release from jail before your trial

A person who is arrested for a criminal charge might have to spend some time in jail. There are incidents in which this time might last until the trial or until the case is resolved. Many criminal charges require a person to post a bail in order to be released prior to the trial. This is so that the court can ensure the person will appear for the required court appearances.
