Q: I have an old DUI case from 2014 that just popped up in a background check. How much would it cost to take care of it?
Charges: DUI and Disregarding a Traffic Light. I was visiting KY and I live in Alaska. I don't have intentions or means to return to KY but I would like to take care of this so it is no longer pending on my file. The status says that a bench warrant was issued. I'm not sure how to go about with an almost 7 year old case.
A: You need to contact a Kentucky DUI attorney who can help evaluate your case. You may be able to plead guilty remotely using Zoom depending on the county, but a DUI remains on your record for 10 years. Most counties are requiring an in-person appearance for a trial now.
