You need to hire a criminal defense attorney in your area to represent you. www.kacdl.net. I assume you are an adult.

Two governing statutes are:

Kentucky Revised Statutes

Title 50. KENTUCKY PENAL CODE

Chapter 530. FAMILY OFFENSES

Current through 2013 Ky. Acts ch. 134

§ 530.060. Endangering welfare of minor

(1) A parent, guardian or other person legally charged with the care or custody of a minor is guilty of endangering the welfare of a minor when he fails or refuses to exercise reasonable diligence in the control of such child to prevent him from becoming a neglected, dependent or delinquent child.
(2) Endangering the welfare of a minor is a Class A misdemeanor.

I am trying to give you a general answer to your question. We do not have an attorney-client relationship by this response on the avvo website. I have not been retained to represent you. I am licensed to practice law in Kentucky and in federal court in this state and the Southern District of Indiana. You need to seek legal advice from an attorney licensed to practice in your area..
