BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE

If you’ve been charged with a crime, you can’t afford to take the chance of losing your case. You need an experienced attorney who is willing to do what it takes to ensure that you get the best representation possible and who will personally handle your case. I am that attorney. I give my clients hope when everyone else has told them they have no chance. The responsibility of a good attorney is to put together the most effective defense possible. I will do just that, examining all evidence for and against my clients to get a solid understanding of their case.

FAQ

  • What should I do if I get arrested?

    First and foremost, don’t admit guilt. You have a right to have an attorney with you for any and all questioning. You are not obligated to answer any questions other than your name, address and age.

    Next, call an attorney (you can reach Chris Spedding at 859-255-0050 (Office) • 859-270-1255 (Cell)).

    Then call a trusted family member.

    The Police Can Search Your Vehicle Only If: A) They Have Probable Cause To Believe You’ve Committed A Crime; Or B) If You Give Them Permission. You Are NOT Obligated To Let Them Search Your Vehicle.

  • What’s the difference between a felony and a misdemeanor?

    A felony is usually reserved for more serious crimes. The penalty for a felony can range from 1 year to life in prison. Unusually serious crimes, called capital offenses, can involve the death penalty in Kentucky. A misdemeanor is usually a less serious offense that carry a maximum of 12 months in jail.

  • How do criminal cases end up in federal court?

    There are several ways in which a case can end up in federal court. In theory, a case has to involve “interstate commerce” meaning the offense has to cross state lines. In reality, with few exceptions, if the federal government wants to prosecute a case, they can. The federal Attorney General’s office prosecutes these cases. They usually involve the DEA, FBI, ATF or ICE to name a few.

  • Can I expunge felonies?

    With few exceptions, no. However, this blog post sheds some light on the expungement process.

  • Do criminal convictions ever just “go away” after a certain period of time?

    No. In order to have a criminal conviction removed from your record, you have to file to have it expunged.
