My question involves criminal law for the state of: Kentucky
I was charged with burglary 2 about 5 days ago. This was for something that happened in January of 2008. A person's apartment was broken into and they called the police. A report was filed and that was the end of it. Now 5 months later, in late May, the person who's home was burglarized called the police and said that I called him and admitted that I had done this. The next day a detective shows up at my house asking questions. He said that if I didn't confess he would obtain a warrant for my arrest and take me to jail. So, of my own free will, I went to police headquarters and had an interview with the same detective. I admitted I had done it and he wrote me a ticket for burglary 2 and gave me a court date.
The main reason I'm writing this is to find a lawyer in Lexington, KY who can get the charges reduced to a misdemeanor and help me through this process. Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated. I can't be charged with a felony -- I'll never get a job. I'm just a 20 year old collage student who made a stupid mistake during a bad time in my life.
Thanks in advance for the help guys!
