Shaw to seek additional term in office
Commonwealth’s Attorney Gordie Shaw announced that he will seek an additional term in office. Shaw has been twice elected to the post which serves Bourbon, Scott, and Woodford Counties.
Shaw stated: “It has been and continues to be a humbling experience to have the opportunity to serve fellow citizens in these communities as their Commonwealth’s Attorney. The cases prosecuted by this office, from drug trafficking to murder, have impacted our towns in meaningful ways. I know there is always room to improve, and we will. We have more trials before us.” “I am blessed to work in an office composed of dedicated personnel who believe in our system of justice. It’s also an honor to work alongside the Versailles Police Department guided by Chief Fugate, and the Sheriff’s Office directed by John Wilhoit.”
“I look forward to continuing to share Woodford County’s prosecutorial duties with County Attorney Alan George.”
Shaw has served as a prosecutor for over 27 years and tried numerous capital murder cases as well as sexual assault cases.
He reflected: “You never forget them.”
