A 33-year-old Kentucky man is facing felony drug trafficking charges after allegedly driving an all-terrain vehicle while intoxicated in Bell County on April 29. The Arjay resident is charged with one count of trafficking in marijuana, first and third degree counts of trafficking in a controlled substance, possessing drug paraphernalia, driving while under the influence of alcohol, driving without a valid driver's license and operating an ATV on the roadway.

A Bell County Sheriff's Department deputy says that the sequence of events began when he pulled over an ATV that he had observed being driven erratically and at a high rate of speed. The deputy claims that the man atop the ATV appeared to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs and had bloodshot eyes. He was taken into custody after allegedly failing two field sobriety tests.

Gambling addiction in Kentucky can lead to legal problems

It has been reported that between 3 and 5 percent of all gamblers have suffered or currently suffer from what would be considered a gambling problem. When a person suffers from alcohol addiction, it makes it more likely that they will struggle with maintaining a healthy balance when it comes to gambling, too.

Being gripped by addiction in one form or another has the power to turn your life upside down. If you are struggling with addiction, it is important to know that it is an illness that can be cured if help is sought. Dealing with addiction can increase a person's likelihood of being involved in crime, in addition. This is often because the person changes one's view on reality, and can resort to extreme measures to fund the addiction.

Kentucky woman could face only probation despite criminal record

A Kentucky woman who had previously avoided prison time after killing two people in a DUI crash could face little more than probation again despite facing a slew of new drug and firearm charges. An error by the police might lead to the most serious charges being dismissed.

According to court records, the woman entered into a plea deal in early March with the Jefferson County prosecutor. The sentence handed down by the judge could be for a minimum of five years probation or a maximum of three years in prison. The defendant admitted in the plea agreement to possessing methamphetamine and prescription drugs with the intent to distribute. She also admitted possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
