I messaged my ex a week ago that I was sorry & regret if I pushed them to have sex one night 10 years ago. We were talking about the Me Too movement and it came up. I don't have the text anymore, and not sure if she does, but have become increasingly worried that she could use this as an admission of guilt or proof if she ever wanted too.
Yes, texts in Kentucky can be used to show guilt in criminal cases. There was a recent KY Supreme Court case on this issue. Do not ever admit any type of criminal conduct in any written form even a text.
