Criminal Defense is Critical

When Kentucky police accuse someone of committing a crime, they often have some evidence to back up their claim. Typically, this includes eyewitnesses, fingerprints, surveillance camera footage or other physical evidence. In some cases, the alleged evidence may be stronger than in others, and many times, investigators may have to connect the dots or make assumptions before making an arrest. However, even if police appear to have clear proof of someone's involvement in a crime, it is still important for the accused to have a strong criminal defense.
