The neighboring apartment building the one directly beside mine. As I was doing so a couple of the people over there came out cussing me trying to fight me saying I was trespassing. I kept walking saying i was sorry I didn’t know and didn’t mean to upset anyone, while they continued to... Read more »
Technically it could be considered criminal trespass in the third degree if there are clear signs that this is private property or that you are in a housing development or section 8. If you were not charged by the police you likely don’t have anything to worry about.
He has 4 biological children and 1 adopted child. The wife wants the entire 250,000 life insurance and does not want the children to have any.

You can contact the police. Assaults between juveniles are still against the law but it will likely be driven by the injury to your child. Was he take him to the doctor? Are there pictures of injuries?
My friend is currently in prison because he got his probation revoked in February of this year for being caught in possession of a firearm as a felon.

In most cases in person on probation or parole who picks up new charges of the new class A, or C felony it’s not eligible for probation or parole on the new case. The only way he would be eligible for probation is if the prosecutor amends to charge to the class D felony which would typically be...Read more »
It depends on the circumstances. If the police do not have any proof at all the person was at any time operating or driving the vehicle then they should not be charged. If the person was driving at a previous date and the police can prove they were driving they could be charged. This commonly...Read more »
It depends if it is a felony or misdemeanor. There can be multiple pre-trial conferences before trial. The number depends on the Judge, prosecutor and charges. If there is a plea of guilty or dismissal there will not be anymore pretrial conference but their could be future court dates.
A person will be charged. They will be given a date to appear in Court for arraignment. They will need to appear at all Court dates given that it is a felony charge. I strongly recommend that person hire an experienced criminal defense attorney.
I do prison ministry. I have a KY inmate sentenced in 3 cases 10, 8 ,& 3 year sentences. 8 and 10 are consecutive but the sentence order has the 3 on both the 8 & 10, concurrent on the ten but consecutive on the 3. (I have a copy of the order). This seems to me to either be absurd or... Read more »
It’s a little bit confusing but he can contact the department of corrections or you can contact the prosecutor who made the deal. If there’s multiple jurisdictions and multiple pleas sometimes the wires can get crossed but he should not be serving double time. Under Kentucky law though if he is...Read more »
Lawyers can represent both of you as long as you don’t have any defenses that are opposing to each other and as long as you both waive your right to separate counsel. This can work for cases in the beginning but if they progress or go further or especially go to trial you will need separate...Read more »

Under Kentucky law new felonies must run consecutive if picked up while on probation. His credit should only be applied to one case but ultimately it’s up to the calculations by the department of corrections after he is sentenced.

Inventory searches are semi-protected under the law. It really depends on the facts and what probable cause the police had and if anything was in plain view. I think you need to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately.
It depends on the judge and it depends how much you have been paying lately. Normally judges will be lenient if you’re doing the best you can but if you refused to pay or haven’t paid a lot in the last few months they could give you an ultimatum and say you have to pay X amount with a a certain...Read more »
