Crafting & Executing a Strong Plan of Defense

There are many different types of defenses that can be used in assault cases. If you are being charged with this crime, it may be possible to show that you acted in self-defense or that the actions you took do not legally qualify as assault under Kentucky law. If there are holes in the evidence or in the alleged victim's claims, it may be possible to show that the allegations are completely unfounded. Furthermore, in the state of Kentucky, it is sometimes possible to get an assault offense mitigated if it can be shown that the defendant was under "extreme emotional disturbance."
