Woman arraigned on unlicensed law practice charge

Staff report

A Paducah woman facing a charge of practicing law without a license appeared in court Thursday in front of McCracken District Judge Tony Kitchen for her arraignment.  

Patrina King, 47, was represented by Paducah attorney Will Kautz, and he entered a not guilty plea on her behalf.  

The allegations in the complaint state that King prepared a divorce petition for $40 for someone without having a license to practice law in Kentucky.  

An investigation began after Attorney General Jack Conway's criminal investigations unit received word from the McCracken County Attorney's Office.

Kautz said after the arraignment that he expects to settle King's case during the next court date Sept. 4.  

"This is a woman that has no criminal record and who was simply trying to help people that could not afford an attorney," Kautz said.  "She did not realize this was against the law."  

King faces up to 90 days in jail and a $250 fine.
