What to do if there is not adequate legal representation

Kentucky residents may know that people are entitled to have an attorney if they if they are charged with a felony or a misdemeanor that could lead to incarceration. However, their rights do not stop here. They are also entitled to what is known as adequate representation. This means that even though a person may not have the best attorney, the attorney must be competent.

Miranda rights and interrogation

While many Kentucky residents recognize that they have rights when detained by authorities, they may not clearly understand how to invoke them. Miranda rights include the right to have a lawyer present during questioning and the right to remain silent when interrogated. However, invocation of the rights is necessary to access the full protection provided. Silence alone may not put an end to questioning.
