The breadth of recognized crimes in Kentucky is vast. Many different driving behaviors, such as speeding, failing to stop at stop signs and aggressive driving, are all charges that Danville residents may be accused of committing while behind the wheels of their cars. Additionally, crimes can include actions that allege individuals committed wrongs against others, such as assaults, thefts, and batteries.
Some criminal charges may seem more serious than others, but all criminal convictions can impose significant and long-lasting penalties on those unfortunate enough to confront them. While misdemeanor charges may result in files, loss of certain privileges or other consequences, convictions based on felonies may yield sentences that include incarceration. A conviction results if a prosecutor proves their case in court and the defendant cannot provide defenses to their allegedly criminal conduct.
All criminal charges should be taken seriously because all charges can result in convictions if they are not properly addressed. While the outcomes of criminal cases can never be guaranteed, many individuals are able to mitigate or avoid criminal sanctions for their alleged crimes when they prepare sound criminal defense strategies.
