My nephew was not given his Miranda right at his arrest in February 2013. When asked If he did the crime he was accused of he answered: "I don't know. I was drunk at the time." This statement was taken as an admission of guilt.He is now in protective custody because of physical abuse do to his alleged crime. We fear for his life because he has been poorly represented from the beginning. The Kenton County Kentucky judge is very arrogant and will not grant reasonable bond or other suggestions by defense counsel. "He's a dangerous individual, they say" and refuse to do anything else.
The alleged crime was committed in Ohio. He is a Kentucky resident and was arrested 6 days later by Ft. Mitchell, Ky police. He is being held in the Kenton County Detention Center (KY). Do we need an attorney that is licensed in both Ohio & KY?
This is my last question: Since this is an Ohio matter, Why is he detained and facing judgment in KY?
