Failure to Be a Licensed Investigator Not Basis for Exclusion

A Kentucky statute prohibits an unlicensed individual from offering private investigation services to the public. Noting that the statute makes no mention of the evidentiary value of the testimony of a proposed expert witness who is not licensed as required by statute and because providing testimony in a court proceeding is not the equivalent of selling the public one's services as a private detective, the court denied the motion to exclude. Lukjan v. Commonwealth of Kentucky, 358 S.W.2d 33 (KY App. 2012).
