Kentucky DUI Laws
Kentucky is notorious for inflicting tough penalties on those charged with Driving Under the Influence. A blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 is all it takes enough to get arrested for driving under the influence in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Even first time offenders face license suspension, fines and the possibility of jail time. Knowing what to do when faced with arrest mean the difference in jail time, job loss and your freedom.
It is not uncommon for the police to make mistakes in conducting DUI arrests. Whether a police officer improperly administers a Blood Alcohol Concentration test, or your blood alcohol content appears elevated due to your medication, or even if you are simply in the wrong place at the wrong time, our DUI attorneys will guide you in the aggressive defense of your case. We also understand that people sometimes make bad decisions, especially when they have been drinking. Our lawyers will carefully review all the details of your case, in order to advise you of the best possible outcome for your DUI case.
The DUI Court Process
The Kentucky court process for DUI charges generally involves 2 or 3 steps. The major steps in the process are:
- The arraignment, during which a plea is entered and the judge may set conditions of release, impose bail, or order you to stay in jail;
- A varying number of mandatory pre-trial court dates, during which motions may be scheduled, a plea bargain may be entered, or readiness for trial determined;
- The trial, during which the facts of a case are presented and decided on by either a judge or a jury.
The most complicated step in the process is the decision of whether or not to take the case to trial. This decision is ordinarily based on the circumstances surrounding your arrest, including the type and timing of any BAC test.
