    Default Publicizing a Criminal Prosecution

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Kentucky

    Hi. I know someone who is being charged with sexual abuse of a minor (and I am involved in the case) and I want to make those he knows aware of it.

    I was considering posting a link to the public page showing his court scheduled date and charges, and telling them what he is accused of. That way, they would know to be wary of him.

    If I did that, could it be considered harassment?

    Same question for creating a website or taking out an ad in the paper.

    However angry you may be or feel the need to punish, do yourself a very big favor and DON'T DO IT. Let the court handle the matter. A person is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

    I honestly probably won't even do it, could end up muddying the waters, or cause a backlash against me. I just like to do my research for all possible outcomes of any remotely possible actions.

    People need to know not to leave their kids with this guy. And if I said anything, I wouldn't SAY he's guilty...just under investigation.

    For the record, Budwad, I appreciate your opinion.

    Obviously, if it would be considered harassment, I wouldn't do it at all.
