    1. Covington-O'Hara, Ruberg, Taylor, Sloan & Sergent: DWI / DUI / Drunk Driving / Driving Under the Influence

      Being charged with the offense of DWI / DUI or Driving Under the Influence is a serious legal matter.

      1. Until your case is finalized in court, you should not discuss your case with anyone other than your lawyer.
      2. If you are contacted by the police or anyone else, you should decline discussing the case without the presence of your lawyer.
      3. You should never attempt to contact witnesses who have been listed to testify against you. This can sometimes be misinterpreted as an effort to intimidate or influence such witnesses' testimony and can have disastrous consequences.
      4. If you believe that witnesses may actually be helpful to your case, make a note of the way in which you think they may help and tell your lawyer about it. This will protect you from any unfair claims with respect to such witnesses.

  13. Edgewood

  16. Fort Mitchel
    1. Brunk Bishop: Common errors made by law enforcement include: Police Officers not having sufficient Probable Cause: Before law enforcement officials can make a DUI traffic stop, they must have sufficient probable cause. If law enforcement officials do not have sufficient probable cause, they cannot legally make the DUI traffic stop. Failure to Read Miranda Rights: In some cases, a police officer may fail to read a driver his/her Miranda Rights before placing the person under arrest. Miranda Rights are read to inform the person of his/her right to remain silent, right to an attorney, and right to have an attorney appointed to him/her. If the officer does not read the driver his/her Miranda Rights, anything the driver said before his/her arrest may not be admissible in court. Inaccurate Field Sobriety Test Results: After a person is suspected of drunk driving, he/she may be asked to perform a series of field sobriety tests for the police officer. It is up to the police officer to determine if the person has passed or failed his/her field sobriety tests. The police officer must closely monitor the personÕs balance, coordination, and motor skills while the person performs the test. It is believed that if a person is under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, he/she will have poor coordination. However, a person can perform poorly during the field sobriety tests for many reasons other than being intoxicated. Some of these reasons may include: slippery road conditions, poor lighting, poor instructions, and medical conditions that impair the personÕs coordination.

  19. Georgetown
    1. Roger, Michael: DUI/DWI: What is it? DUI, DWI, OUI and OUIL are all terms for driving drunk (drunk driving) at or above a certain level of alcohol. Well over a million drivers (1.5) are arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs in the United States every year. Even though all states have lowered blood alcohol levels to .08, every state has its own laws and consequences for driving under the influence (DUI), driving while intoxicated (DWI), operating under the influence (OUI) or operating under the influence of liquor (OUIL). In addition to drunk driving being a criminal matter (court matter and a crime) it is also an administrative matter pertaining to the drivers license (immediate, mandatory and automatic license suspension). Immediate driver license suspension laws for alcohol-impaired drivers, refers to administrative per se (APS), automatic license revocation (ARL) or on-the-spot license suspension laws. These laws are different for each state and each one has it own automatic license suspension consequences. License suspension or revocation traditionally follows conviction for alcohol-impaired driving. Under a procedure called administrative license suspension, licenses are taken before conviction when a driver fails or refuses to take a chemical test. Because administrative license suspension laws are independent of criminal procedures and are invoked right after arrest, they've been found to be more effective than traditional post-conviction sanctions. Forty-one states and the District of Columbia have administrative license suspension laws. Thirty-seven states permit some offenders to drive only if their vehicles have been equipped with ignition interlocks. These devices analyze a driver's breath and disable the ignition if the driver has been drinking. In 22 states, multiple offenders may forfeit vehicles that are driven while impaired by alcohol.
    2. Dutra & Higdon: You should consult an attorney for individual advice regarding your own situation.
    3. David Higdon:   A person commits the offense of witness tampering if he or she offers, confers, or agrees to confer any benefit on a witness or a prospective witness in a judicial or an administrative proceeding. A person also commits the offense of witness tampering if he or she coerces a witness or a prospective witness in a judicial or an administrative proceeding with the intent to influence to the witness to testify falsely, to withhold his or her testimony, to absent himself or herself from the proceeding, or to discontinue or to delay the proceeding.

Other substances can include illegal drugs, prescription drugs, inhalants such as glue, gasoline, spray paint etc., and/or over the counter medications. KentuckyÕs DUI law has an "Illegal Per Se" provision. "Illegal Per Se" (On the face of or by itself) means it is illegal to drive with a blood or breath alcohol content of 0.08 or higher. Prosecutors no longer have to prove defendants were impaired if they are being tried for the per se clause of K.R.S. 189A.010. Requires that test be given within 2 hours of operation of motor vehicle for results to be admitted into evidence in per se DUI prosecutions."

  47. Salyersville-William Arnett: People sometimes feel shy about discussing legal problems and other personal matters. In these situations, it's comforting to know the law protects your confidential discussion with your lawyer. The law says your lawyer must keep your secrets secret, and cannot discuss them with anyone-including a court or government agency-unless you say otherwise. This is the attorney-client privilege.
  48. Shepardsville
    1. Schmidt & Associates: If you or someone you love has been arrested for drunk driving, also known as driving under the influence (DUI), then hiring an attorney may help minimize the costs and, if applicable, the jail time you or your loved one faces for driving under the influence (DUI). The penalties for drunk driving (DUI) are listed below, and the costs are higher than you might think. MSN published an article on the costs of a DUI, or drinking and driving, offense entitled "DUI: The $10,000 Ride Home". It outlines the costs from attorney fees to towing costs. It should help answer the question "Do I need a DUI defense lawyer?" A DUI defense lawyer can help you understand your options, help you avoid making more costly mistakes, and/or mount a defense against the charges. It is illegal per se to drive with a blood or breath alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08 or higher, but operators can be convicted at levels lower than .08 based on other evidence which indicates impairment. Drivers under the age of 21 are deemed to be driving under the influence at .02 breath or blood alcohol level. You must provide your name, drivers license, and registration if an officer stops you. You can refuse to take field sobriety tests, but do so respectfully and politely. If you are taken into custody, then the police will ask you to take breath, blood or urine tests. Kentucky drivers implicitly consent to take breath, blood or urine tests, but you may refuse these tests as well. Refusal to take the breath, blood or urine tests may make it harder for prosecutors and police to secure a conviction, but a refusal will increase your penalties if you are convicted and makes it is possible for your license to be suspended for a time, whether or not you are found guilty of drunk driving / DUI.
    2. Wantland Law: A test that indicates a high blood alcohol content (BAC) does not automatically convict you of drunk driving. The accuracy of your breath test, the interpretation of your blood test, and the field sobriety test will contribute to the legality of a DUI.

    1. Sweeney, CH: The Constitution and Bill of Rights provide protection to all persons accused of a crime. The Due Process Clause has extended your constitutional rights to cover not only federal criminal matters, but State matters as well. You are entitled to equal protection under the law, the right to be free from unreasonable search and seizure, the right to due process of law, to have notice of the charges against you, the right to not incriminate yourself and to call witnesses on your behalf, the right to a speedy and public trial including a trial by a jury of your peers. You have the right to be free from cruel and unusual punishment or excessive fines or bail. You have the right against double jeopardy which is being tried twice for the same offense. You also have the right to an attorney. It is important that you have a criminal defense attorney on your side to protect your Constitutional Rights.

    3. Goeing and Goeing Pllc: More than likely you, someone in your family, a friend or an acquaintance, has gotten a DUI/DWI. If this is the case please read on. Of course, if this isn't the case and you or someone you know hasn't gotten a DUI, you may still find this information interesting. A DUI conviction can have serious implications - loss of license, loss of job, family and relationship consequences, heavy fines, higher insurance premiums and possible jail time to mention a few. No doubt, if you have been charged with a DUI you know this or you wouldn't be searching for an attorney. Wise decision. Image This may be your first DUI, a second, or more than you care to think about. In Kentucky, the penalties for DUI increase with each subsequent conviction until finally it becomes a felony. At this point you are facing time in the penitentiary (more than one year in jail). When the arresting police officer pulled you over, you may have thought you were okay to drive, but a .08 blood alcohol reading on a breath test is all it takes for a DUI conviction in Kentucky. A few beers, a few drinks, and here you are. The problem is the majority of people have no idea how many drinks they can consume and still be "under the legal limit." In fact, no one really knows because it is different for everyone and can even change for the same person for a variety of reasons. You might have thought as you left the restaurant or bar, home, a friends house or wherever, that you were fine, only to find yourself taking a field sobriety test or sitting in jail. You thought you were driving normally, only to have an officer stop you for weaving on the road, a broken tail light, brake light, or not giving a turn signal. Once again, one thing leads to another and here you are. Image You need a DUI attorney because often officers are wrong and DUI attorneys can help discover information to prove it. You may be innocent. If the proper procedures were not followed by the arresting officers, the incriminating evidence which was collected might be suppressed. In addition, field sobriety tests are not always as reliable as they are often made out to be. Maybe you had a leg injury, eye problems, medical issues, prescription medications, or other legitimate reasons for the officer to assume you were intoxicated.
  • Whitley City: Marcus Vanover: MPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ANYONE CHARGED WITH A D.U.I.: You should be aware that a D.U.I. conviction may result in harsher penalties if you are charged with another D.U.I. offense within five (5) years. Additionally, D.U.I. offenses result in mandatory license suspensions, and the length of these suspensions increase with additional offenses. There are also harsher penalties if you are charged with operating a motor vehicle while your license is suspended for D.U.I. If you are charged with a D.U.I., you do have certain rights that are guaranteed to all criminal defendants, including the right to remain silent, the right to a trial, the right to have your guilt proven beyond a reasonable doubt, and the right to appeal your case to a higher court if you are convicted. There are other rights that you have if you are charged of which you should be aware. Kentucky has recently enacted statutes making defenses to D.U.I. cases much more difficult. Nevertheless, defenses do exist. An attorney may know of legal defenses of which you are not aware that may be able to assist you in the event you are charged. I urge you to speak with an attorney to insure your rights are protected, even if it is not this office.
