Criminal Law: Protecting Your Rights
A conviction for even a relatively minor crime can dramatically alter your future. A criminal record can make it challenging to find housing and employment, and can make you ineligible to receive certain loans. If you have been charged with a crime, it is crucial to seek help from an aggressive criminal defense lawyer who will fight to protect your rights and your future.
I am attorney Frederick Johnson, and I understand how a criminal allegation can turn your life upside down. I will work hard to help get your charges dismissed or reduced, and I will zealously advocate on your behalf to help minimize the potential consequences of a criminal charge.
Establishing A Strong Defense Against A Wide Range Of Charges
I defend people who have been charged with a wide range of crimes in Kentucky, including:
- Sexual offenses: The mere allegation of a sex crime can be enough to destroy your reputation, long before you get a chance to tell your side of the story in court. I will work hard to limit the damage and to challenge the evidence against you.
- Drug charges: From misdemeanor drug possession charges to felony charges involving significant amounts of illegal drugs, I am here to provide you with the strong defense you need while working hard to limit the potentially severe consequences that can come with a drug crime charge.
- Driving under the influence (DUI): A drunk driving or DUI charge can happen to anyone. For many people, this may be their first and only contact with the criminal justice system. It is important to remember that defenses are available, and you should speak with an attorney before volunteering any information to the police or prosecutors.
