Robby Albarado, who was charged with two felonies and a misdemeanor after a domestic incident, has resolved his case.
In a plea bargain deal struck in lieu of holding a preliminary hearing, two of the three original charges were dismissed, and Albarado pled guilty to a remaining charge that was amended down from a felony to a misdemeanor.
Albarado was originally charged in Jefferson District Court in Louisville with First Degree Wanton Endangerment and Intimidating A Participant in the Legal Process, both felonies. He was also charged with Fourth Degree Assault, a misdemeanor which is the lesser of all possible assault charges in Kentucky.
The Wanton Endangerment and Assault charges were dismissed. Albarado entered a plea of guilty to an amended charge of Attempted Intimidating A Participant in the Legal Process, a misdemeanor. He was sentenced to 365 days in jail, conditionally discharged. That means he won't have to serve any time if he meets the conditions of the court. A typical condition is an order not to commit any further offenses.
Judge David Bowles presided over the case which was resolved on April 20. Albarado was represented by Scott J. Barton. Albarado has been named to ride Animal Kingdom in the Kentucky Derby.
