Kentucky Criminal Laws

Criminal laws are passed and enforced almost exclusively at the state level; and while the types of conduct criminalized don't vary too much from state to state, crime classifications and sentences often do. Kentucky criminal statutes address the whole range of violent crimes such as assault and battery, sexual assault, and different degrees of homicide (from capital murder to accidental killings). State laws also prohibit property-related and white collar crimes such as identity theft, burglary, and fraud.
