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.

Q: Hello, I got 3rd DUI in Kentucky. Is there anyway possible way to get house arrest?

Will be my third DUI within 10 years, I also have an immigration Case going on, also have a 83 year old adoptive mother that needs my help financially, what are my options?

Timothy Denison
Timothy Denison answered on Feb 17, 2021

Depends on the county where the DUI is but HiP on a 3rd is unlikely. Hire a competent criminal defense attorney, aggressively defend the DUI, and if you can get it amended or favorably resolved that will help tremendously with your immigration case.

You may want to see if there is any reason for the change. If you didn’t agree to it, you may want to ask the court to set aside the plea agreement and inquire into the unauthorized ple. Consult a lawyer before you do anything.
