Every single person with a drug charge is being required to report to Pre Trial Services for random drug screens and forced to pay for them. Personally Im baffled. Innocent until proven guilty is yet again getting bypassed. What if the officer illegally searched? In the meantime you fail a drug... Read more »

Belongings. I had no idea she had drugs. She has long criminal history. I'm 60 and have no criminal history. She has been arrested at least 4 times since then.

He was sitting in the booking area waiting to be booked, and the jail left the sally port door open and he ran out of it. Racking up several other charges. If the facility hadn't been negligent he would not be facing the additional charges.
She is 12 years old and he makes her let him watch her shower in detail and if she denies him he physically punishes her and hasn’t giving her outside contact until I picked her up for Christmas break I noticed she had cuts on her wrist and come to find out she is self harming herself to get out...

I would need more information to answer your question. Specifically I would need to see his criminal history record and a summary of all new charges. If probation is possible, I would also need to speak with the prosecutor to see what the Commonwealth's position would be.
You can contact the county attorney and state that you wish the charge(s) to be withdraw. However, you are presumably the victim and subsequently a witness, and the criminal complaint is brought by the Commonwealth of Kentucky, not you. Therefore the Commonwealth may proceed with the charges...Read more »
My mother rents the property where the arrest occured so the lease is in her name. My address was not there. I lived elsewhere. So, 1 day there was a little jon boat left at the end of my mother's driveway, almost blocking it off. We did not know if someone was coming back for it or what. After a... Read more »
I would definitely have to know more about the case to give you a complete answer, but it appears that law-enforcement doesn’t entirely believe your story. Hindsight is 20/20 but It probably would’ve been best if you had called the police when the mysterious boat appeared in the driveway....Read more »
Someone I know has an outstanding bench warrant in a criminal case for failure to appear. Is he technically a fugitive? He's requested I help him out with some bills, and I've done so in the past. Am I "aiding and abetting" if I pay his electric bill, or offer him other financial aid?
The individual you want to help just needs to get that bench warrant for failure to appear taken care of as soon as possible. Perhaps lending money to help him or her retain an attorney might be a better allocation of funds.
