Hopkinsville Criminal Defense Lawyer
DEFENDING PEOPLE ACCUSED OF CRIMES IN WESTERN KENTUCKY
Under our legal system, you are supposed to be presumed innocent until you are proven guilty. In reality, overzealous police and prosecutors are geared up to convict people as soon as they make an arrest. As a result, many innocent people are wrongfully charged and convicted of crimes.
I am Kenneth Haggard, a criminal defense lawyer in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. If you have been accused of a crime in western Kentucky, I offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
I provide aggressive defense for people accused of all types of criminal charges, including:
- Drunk driving
- Drug crimes, such as possession, possession with intent to sell, and drug distribution
- Domestic violence
- Assault and battery
- Theft crimes
- Sexual assault
- Vehicular homicide
- Murder and attempted murder
As your lawyer, I strive to protect your rights and force the government to prove its case. I am known for taking on difficult cases. I represented an individual who shot a police officer during a raid of his home. The police claimed that my client knowingly shot the officer as he entered the house and charged him with attempted murder. I was able to prove that my client shot through the door, did not know it was police breaking down his door, and was able to reduce criminal charges to wanton endangerment.
