Overview

Kentucky Instructions to Juries provides examples of instructions that are uniform, concise and specific. You'll save time and practice confidently with convenient and authoritative instructions.

The Criminal Instructions were prepared by William S. Cooper, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of Kentucky and revised by Donald P. Cetrulo, Former Director of the Administrative Office of the Court.

While the criminal instructions track the language of the statutes, there are many fine points: for example, the 5th edition includes revised, complicity and self protection instructions that keep the work current with recent case law and acts of the General Assembly. The revised commentary guides the reader, describing frequently recurring mistakes that cause erroneous instructions.

References to relevant cases following the sample instructions provide source material to aid the attorney in drafting final instructions. Commentary by the authors, provides essential background information, which explains the rationale for the language used in the instruction, and offers illuminating comparisons with similar or related instructions: making the commentary as important as the instructions themselves.'
