My husband got a dui and a wanton endangerment. He was in a car accident . The other car just got a scratch and is ok but his car is totaled his friend was with him. He is ok and his friend has a twisted ankle the other drive was unharmed . This happened in KY .
Your husband is looking as serious charges, the wanton endangerment 1st degree is a Class D felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison. Is it possible in theory yes, but he needs to hire an criminal defense attorney immediately to have the best shot at not going to prison for these serious charges.
