Kentucky man facing charges after police pursuit

| Aug 20, 2018 | Criminal Defense |

Officers say that the man refused to exit his vehicle when ordered to do so and instead left the area at a high rate of speed. The man was apprehended a short time later after his abandoned vehicle had been found behind a nearby shopping mall according to police. A search of the man and his vehicle is said to have uncovered two handguns, several suboxone pills, marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Officers say that the man admitted that the guns and drugs were his.

The evidence gathered by police officers can seem compelling to those facing serious drug and weapons charges, but experienced criminal defense attorneys would likely advise them to remain silent until they have consulted with a lawyer. Evidence collected by police officers is sometimes ruled inadmissible even when search warrants have been obtained and police officers appear to have acted correctly, but admissions or confessions cannot be taken back once they have become part of the official record.
