What Is A4/DV in Kentucky?

A4/DV is shorthand for the charge of Assault, 4th Degree and DV is shorthand for Domestic Violence.  It is defined in Kentucky Revised Statutes §508.030 as follows: KRS 508.030 - Assault in the fourth degree. (1) A person is guilty of assault in the fourth degree when: (a) He intentionally or wantonly causes physical injury to another person; or (b) With recklessness he causes physical injury to another person by means of a deadly weapon or a dangerous instrument. (2) Assault in the fourth degree is a Class A misdemeanor. As a class A misdemeanor, the crime of Assault 4 is punishable by up to 12 months in county jail and/or $500 fine, in addition to court costs.  The defendant may also be made to pay restitution if there are any out of pocket expenses or medical bills of the victim.  Assault 4th may or may not be against a significant other, in which case the DV actually makes sense. If you are charged with A4/DV, you need to hire an attorney.  In Northern Kentucky, contact Bouldin Law Firm at 859-581-6453 (581-MIKE) for a consultation.
