COMMONWEALTH V. BLAKELY
CRIMINAL: Motor vehicle insurance; non-owner
PUBLISHED: CERTIFYING THE LAW (SCOTT)
DATE RENDERED: 5/24/2007 (FROM JEFFERSON DISTRICT COURT, HON. ANGELA BISIG)
Upon certification of the law, SC held KRS Chapter 304 does not attach criminal liability upon a non-owner operator of an uninsured vehicle. The amendments made in 2005 do not adequately demonstrate that the General Assembly wanted to change the statutory interpretation of KRS Chapter 304.
