Section 7 High risk defendants
Pursuant to KRS 431.066(2), the court shall determine, based upon the pretrial risk assessment and the factors set forth in KRS 431.525, whether the defendant is a flight risk, is unlikely to appear for trial, or is likely to be a danger to the public if released.
If, based upon the pretrial risk assessment, a defendant is determined to pose a high risk of (1) flight or failure to appear or (2) anticipated criminal conduct or new criminal activity, or the court determines that the defendant has a high risk of not appearing for trial or poses a high risk of danger to others, the pretrial officer will develop and recommend to the court a monitoring level sufficient to mitigate risk.
