What Can A Lawyer Do For AI or DC?

In Northern Kentucky an attorney can often assist a defendant who has been charged with Alcohol Intoxication (AI), which is often referred to as "public intox" or Discorderly Conduct (DC). While these charges are generally regarding as minor misdemeanors, they can have negative consequences. AI is a fine only or prepayable offense for first time offenders. While this is one way to resolve the case, AI is also an "enhanceable" crime, meaning that a subsequent offense is more serious than a first. Additionally, paying the fine is also an admission of guilt which will then become part of a permanent criminal record. An attorney may assist a defendant in admission into a diversion or other type of program which may keep the charge off of the person's criminal record. DC is considered an A Misdemeanor which is punishable by up to 12 months of incarceration. While this most serious term of incarceration is seldom given to first time offenders, it is a mistake to think of this as a minor charge. Anyone charged with a misdemeanor should give serious consideration to hiring an attorney before appearing in court. If you have been charged with a crime or know someone who has in Boone, Campbell, Gallatin or Kenton counties, contact Michael Bouldin in Northern Kentucky at mwbouldin@fuse.net or 859-581-6453.
