The Legal Advocate You Need To Fight For Your Freedom
The laws of the United States of America and the laws of the Commonwealth of Kentucky afford every person charged with criminal activity a right to a trial by jury and afford a presumption of innocence until guilt is proven. Oftentimes bad things happen to good people and everyone should have the opportunity to present a defense for the crimes with which they have been charged.
At Foreman Watson Holtrey, LLP, in Owensboro, we will take time to investigate the facts surrounding criminal charges against you. You should not be alone dealing with police, other investigators and the criminal justice system. You deserve a chance to have your own attorney present evidence in your defense and afford you the protection of the due process of law.
Comprehensive Criminal Defense Representation
At Foreman Watson Holtrey, LLP, our criminal defense lawyers can defend you against a wide range of charges, ranging from minor misdemeanors to serious felonies. Whether you face a felony charge or a misdemeanor, you deserve a strong legal advocate to fight for you.
We can help you with a variety of misdemeanors and felonies, including:
- Drug trafficking
A misdemeanor is generally a less severe crime, with punishments including some jail time, smaller fines, community service and probation. Misdemeanors generally include nonviolent crimes, including trespass, public intoxication, theft, DUI and prostitution. Felonies are serious, often violent crimes that can lead to a lifetime behind bars and large fines. Crimes such as murder, kidnapping that result in death, first-degree robbery, burglary and second-degree assault.
Depending on the nature and circumstances of the crime, a charge may be either a state or a federal crime. Federal crimes, such as drug trafficking and violent crimes, are tried in a federal court and often result in harsher sentences than a Kentucky state crime.
