Q: How long do the courts have to indict someone in the state of Kentucky? I know that they have 60 days if your still in
Jail but does that 60 days still apply if you’re out on bond?
A: Typically you have a year to indict under most general procedures of Prosecutor’s offices in Kentucky but you can always charge a felony. There are no statutes of limitations on felonies. There is a one you statute of limitation on misdemeanors but misdemeanors don’t get indicted by themselves. They only get indicted if they are along with felonies.
