Can I Be Charged With Armed Robbery In Kentucky If A Witness Falsely Accuses Me?

March 25th, 2014 by Attorney Dan Carman

Yes. You can be charged with armed robbery and many other crimes based on a witness’s testimony, regardless of its truthfulness.

Being convicted and sentenced, however, is a different matter. Whether you are to be convicted depends on, among other things, the evidence available to the prosecution to prove to a jury beyond a reasonable doubt the elements of the crime(s) with which you are charged. In other words, even if you have been charged with armed robbery or any other crime based on some information that the police or other authorities had at one time, you will not necessarily be convicted of anything. You should speak with a local criminal defense attorney as soon as possible to discuss possible defenses in your case.

If you or a loved one have been charged with a felony offense in Kentucky or in the Lexington area in particular, call my office at (859) 685-1055 for a free consultation.
