You need to hire a good criminal defense attorney ASAP. In addition to the new felony charges, the Commonwealth could make a motion to revoke the probated sentence. If indicted, you could also be charged with being a Persistent felony offender II.

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..
Additionally, you should expect a rather high bond. You should ask your attorney to see if you are eligible for any type of drug court program that the Circuit court may offer. Restitution may also be an issue with respect to length of incarceration. Find a criminal defense lawyer in your area as soon as possible.
