Why Am I Being Arrested If There is No Evidence I Committed a Crime?
In the Commonwealth of Kentucky, the police only need probable cause to arrest and charge someone with a crime. It is then up to the prosecutor’s office to determine whether there is enough supporting evidence to prove you are guilty of committing the crime beyond a reasonable doubt.
Never assume that because the case against you may appear weak, you will not have to fight for your freedom. Our skilled criminal defense lawyer in Hartford will examine the evidence the prosecutor has to support their case and will begin building your defense strategy by challenging any irrelevant or inadmissible details, so we can either have the charges reduced or dismissed when possible.
Will Law Enforcement Go Easier on Me If I Talk to Them?
Law enforcement in Kentucky and elsewhere throughout the U.S. use long-proven interview techniques that get people to tell them what they want to hear. Unfortunately, that often means lying to an individual about the details of their case — which is entirely legal.
For this reason and countless others, we advise anyone arrested for a crime in Kentucky to invoke their right to remain silent and their right to legal counsel, so all their rights are protected from the start of their cases. Do not allow law enforcement to intimidate you or attempt to befriend you by telling you that talking to them is your best option. They do not have your best interests in mind, which may only become evident after it is too late.
