FRANKFORT, Ky. (July 16, 2014) — A Paducah woman has been charged with practicing law without a license, according to Attorney General Jack Conway. Patricia King, 47, was charged by criminal summons on Monday afternoon.
In June, the McCracken County Attorney’s Office notified Attorney General Conway’s Department of Criminal Investigations that it had received information King was practicing law in the county without a license. The Attorney General’s Public Integrity/Special Investigations Branch investigated the allegation, and as a result, King was charged in this case.
Practicing law without a license is a class B misdemeanor, punishable by up to 90 days in jail and a $250 fine. King is scheduled to appear in court Aug. 14.
A charge is merely an accusation; a defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
