What Is A Mini-D Felony?

Kentucky has enacted new laws which change the nature of many crimes, particularly those related to possession and sale of controlled substances. Simple possession of small amounts of cocaine, heroin and certain prescriptions have been changed from D felonies to "mini" D felonies. The prescribed resolution to the mini-D felonies are 1-3 years of jail and these crimes are generally handled with pre-trial deferred prosecution. Deferred prosecution is akin to diversion, wherein the defendant is on probation for a period of time. If probation period is successful, the defendant can have the charges dismissed and later expunged. The crimes of trafficking prescription pills (other than Schedule 1 narcotics) of less than 20 dosage units is also now a class mini D felony, punishable by 1-3 years in prison. The new Kentucky statute is found in KRS 218A. If you have been charged with a crime under the new laws and have questions how the changes apply to your case, contact a criminal defense lawyer.
