Defending Your Rights & Reputation

Lexington Incest Defense Attorneys

Call (859) 951-3112 if You’ve Been Charged with Incest

Facing an incest accusation is no simple matter. Society places harsh and often intimidating stereotypes on those charged with incest, whether you committed the crime or not. It is difficult to restore your reputation and livelihood after society learns of such an allegation, which is why our team at Bleile & Dawson is prepared to tackle your charge head-on.

Incest laws intend to prevent birth defects and safeguard familial relationships. If blood-related people have sexual relations, there’s a high chance their child would have disabilities and health issues. Further, the law makes it a priority to prohibit incest to better prevent sexual assault among family members. Those who are found guilty of incest are seen as threats to these two principles.

What Is Incest?

Kentucky law defines incest as a person who has sexual intercourse or deviate sexual intercourse with a person they know to be an ancestor, descendant, uncle, aunt, brother, or sister. These relationships include whole or half-blood relationships without regard to:

  • Legitimacy
  • Relationship of parent and child by adoption
  • Relationship of stepparent and stepchild
  • Relationship of step-grandparent and step-grandchild

It is very possible to argue that you did not know the person you allegedly committed incest with was related to you by any means. This is especially the case if we can prove that you have a big family and/or family who lives far away. If you retain one of our highly regarded incest defense lawyers, you can trust that we will employ hard-hitting defenses such as false accusations, lack of knowledge, misidentification, and other effective arguments.

Incest is a felony. If convicted, you may be punished as such:

  • Class C felony: If the act is committed by consenting adults
  • Class B felony: If the act is committed:
    • By forcible compulsion
    • On a victim who is under 18 years old or incapable of consent because he or she is physically helpless or mentally incapacitated
