Prostitution and Heroin in Kenton County, Kentucky

Kenton County has had a rash of prostitution and theft charges recently, the majority relating to the increase in the use of heroin in Northern Kentucky.  Today Mike Rutledge of the Enquirer reported Kenton County blaming the increase in prostitution and copper theft on the rise in heroin use.  Covington police have charged approximately 25 people for prostitution already this September.  Under the new law, an "arrest" may also be a citation to the person being charged as a physical arrest is no longer required for a misdemeanor in Kentucky. The increase in Heroin is due to a number of factors.  The ease of obtaining the drug as well as the cost are the primary factors.  Local police are calling the heroin use as a epidemic, liking it to the LSD epidemic of the 1970s. A similar rise has been seen in Newport.  Last year the number of heroin cases was 63 while there have already been over 70 reported in 2012.  The increase is throughout Northern Kentucky. Another concern is that the crimes committed are during the day.  A common misperception is that crimes only occur at night.  It is much less obvious when someone is burglarizing a building or a home if it is done during the day.  A robbery is often misconstrued as a person doing home improvement or other work on a property when the thief is actually stealing copper.  More recent changes to reporting of metal sales may decrease the copper thefts which regularly occur. If you have been charged with possession of heroin, prostitution, theft or any other crime in Northern Kentucky, contact Michael W. Bouldin for a consultation of your criminal case.  You can contact Mike by calling 859-581-6453 (581-MIKE) or via email at [email protected]
