What is Jail Time for Class D Felony in Ky?

A class D felony in Kentucky is punishable by 1-5 years of incarceration. This may be served in the state prison or, more likely, in local county jails.  Class D is the lowest form of felony in the commonwealth of Kentucky and most first time offenders are eligible for probation.  Certain crimes may also be eligible for felony diversion.  Felony diversion is available to first-time, non-violent felons, but must be with the consent and agreement of the prosecution. Felony diversion is a program that allows a person to enter a plea then be sentenced to a period of probation. If that person successfully completes probation, the case can ultimately be dismissed.  This enables the defendant to proceed as if they have not had a crime on their record. **in certain cases,  this may be used in sentencing if the defendant commits and is sentenced on a subsequent federal felony. If you have been charged with a crime, including felony or misdemeanor charges, in Kentucky, contact an experienced criminal defense attorney.  For a consultation in Northern Kentucky, call the Bouldin Law Firm and schedule an appointment to meet with Michael Bouldin.  Call 859-581-6453 or email [email protected].
