Traffic Citation on 71/75

Posted on July 13, 2016 in General Criminal Law Issues - Northern KY State Crimes in Northern Kentucky

TRAFFIC CITATION:

If you received a traffic citation on Interstate 71/75 in Northern Kentucky, you might have to appear in court.  The court would be in Boone or Kenton county, depending on the exact location of the citation.

If you have been cited and do not wish to appear for the hearing, you can hire an attorney to handle your court case on your behalf.  For representation in Kenton or Boone or elsewhere in Northern Kentucky, call attorney Michael Bouldin.  While Michael Bouldin generally handles larger felony, misdemeanor and DUI cases, he is well versed in defense and plea negotiations regarding all traffic citations.

Often a resolution can be reached without the necessity of the appearance of the defendant.  This may include dismissal, CATs program referral, mediation, diversion, or plea deal that is beneficial to the defendant.  Of course, if the defendant wishes to proceed to trial that is his/her right and extensive trial experience of over 20 years will lead to a very good defense.

For consultation and representation, call Michael Bouldin at 859-581-6453 or email at mwbouldin2@gmail.com.

Speeding Citation in Kentucky

Posted on June 23, 2016 in General Criminal Law Issues - Northern KY

If you received a speeding citation or other traffic ticket traveling in or through Kentucky, you may be able to handle the case with an attorney and avoid appearance in court. Even if your citation requires court appearance, an attorney can generally appear on behalf of the defendant and waive his or her appearance.

If you intend to enter a guilty plea, most district courts in Kentucky require it to be written if the defendant is not in attendance. This protects the court, attorneys as well as the defendant so that the rights are secured and clearly explained.  There are times when you can pay the citation without an appearance – your citation will advise of those rights – however, payment is an admission of guilt which can often affect points, license and insurance.  Some result in license suspension in your home state.

There are times when a charged may be amended (for example, speeding 18 miles over the limit may be amended to 15 over on a limited access highway.  This is a 3 point violation instead of 6 for speeding over 15.  Others may be amended to 10 over on L/A highway, a zero (0) point violation and is generally not reported to the driver’s home state).  An attorney not only might be able to prevent physical appearance in court, but may save you points on your license and additional insurance premiums.

If you have been charged with any license or traffic violation in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, contact a local attorney.  For consultation, email mike@bouldinlawfirm.com or call Bouldin Law Firm at 859-581-6453 (859-581-MIKE).
