Lexington, KY asked in DUI / DWI for Kentucky

Q: My mom and I were on our way to work and she got pulled over for speeding and driving with a suspended license.

She didn't have her drivers license or registration on her and was arrested. I don't know who to call or who I have to talk to to get it set up for her to get out. Where do I need to start? And what do you think her punishment will be?

A: If she was arrested in the morning, her bond should be reviewed by the judge the same day "usually." She will have arraignment in the next 24 hours if she is not bonded out sooner. Typically if arrested in the morning, her arraignment is at 9:00 a.m. the next day. This information should not be relied upon as legal advice and is general in nature.
