Section 5 Low 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 low risk of (1) flight or failure to appear or (2) anticipated criminal conduct or new criminal activity, and the court determines that the defendant is likely to appear for trial and is not likely to be a danger to others, the court shall order the defendant released on unsecured bond or on the defendant's own recognizance subject to such other least restrictive conditions as the court may order.
