Misdemeanor Criminal Defense

“Just” a misdemeanor? Don’t be fooled. Even misdemeanors can have far-reaching consequences. They can carry up to a one-year jail sentence, harm your ability to find certain types of employment or qualify for a professional license or security clearance, raise your insurance rates, or result in the loss of your driving privileges.

Whenever you are charged with a crime – whether it is a felony or “just” a misdemeanor – you need a Kentucky defense attorney who will be able to bring about the most favorable result possible. It may involve pleading to a lesser offense, entering a drug program, paying a fine, or going to trial. The experienced attorneys of the Oliver Law Offices will be able to advise you and work vigorously on your behalf.

Kentucky misdemeanors are designated as Class A or Class B. Class A misdemeanors can include the following:

  • possession of marijuana
  • shop lifting
  • assault and battery
  • bad checks
  • DUI
  • certain sex crimes.

The following may be Class B misdemeanors:

  • possession of marijuana
  • driving without a license
  • driving without insurance
  • criminal mischief
  • menacing.

Don’t try to go it alone, even if the charge is “just” a misdemeanor. For a thorough appraisal of your situation and an explanation of your options, contact a Kentucky criminal defense lawyer at the Oliver Law Offices: (859) 986-8468. The initial consultation is free.
