Section 6 Moderate 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, the court determines that a defendant poses a moderate risk of (1) flight or failure to appear or (2) anticipated criminal conduct or new criminal activity, and the court determines that the defendant has a moderate risk of not appearing for trial and poses a moderate risk of danger to others, the court shall release the defendant on unsecured bond or on the defendant's own recognizance but the court shall consider global positioning system (GPS) monitoring, controlled substance testing, increased supervision, or such other least restrictive conditions as the court may order.
