Featured Case - Agreeing to leave the county

The order of the court probating a twelve-month sentence on the condition that the defendant leave the county violated the defendant's right of free travel.  Nevertheless, since the defendant did not object to the imposition of that condition at the it was imposed, the judgment of conviction survived and it was not a violation of the defendant's constitutional rights to revoke the probation and order the defendant to serve the twelve months.  Butler v. Commonwealth, 304 SW3d 78 (Ky.App.2010).
