Kentucky law contains several statutes regarding criminal trespassing. While there are varying degrees of such crimes, all criminal trespassing in this state is adjudicated as a misdemeanor. Police say they recently arrested a man who was allegedly walking through people’s backyards. He has no doubt since begun planning a criminal defense after being charged with numerous crimes.
Police got a call and set out to find the man
Police say they were dispatched to a particular neighborhood after receiving calls that a man was wandering through numerous backyards in the area. It was approximately 10 p.m. on a recent Sunday when officers went looking for the man. When the deputies located the man, they claim he began yelling at them and then took off on foot.
A foot-chase ensued
Police officers chased the man down and, after catching up with him at a tree line, took him into custody. Deputies say the man resisted the arrest. He has since been charged with criminal trespassing, resisting arrest and possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia.
Every person is entitled to criminal defense
There is no way to predict with 100% certainty what the outcome of a specific criminal case will be. However, any person arrested and charged with a crime can be certain that he or she will be given an opportunity to refute the charges in court. It is helpful to request legal representation before going to court because an experienced Kentucky attorney who is well-versed in criminal law can help a defendant explore defense strategies to determine a best course of action in a particular set of circumstances.
