George re-elected by state attorney group
Woodford County Attorney Alan George was re-elected for another two-year term as treasurer of the Kentucky County Attorneys Association (KCAA) at the annual Kentucky Prosecutors’ Conference, held Aug. 29-31 at the Lexington Convention Center.
George was also picked again to serve on both the KCCA executive committee and board of directors.
George, the longest serving officer in KCAA history, has served continuously as treasurer for the Commonwealth’s participating county attorneys since taking office as Woodford County Attorney in January of 1994. Currently, 110 of the state’s 120 county attorneys are dues-paying members of the association.
The prosecutors’ conference provides continuing legal education opportunities for all Kentucky prosecutors (county attorneys and commonwealths attorneys). Featured speakers this year included Attorney General Andy Beshear; Hon. John Minton, Chief Justice of the Kentucky Supreme Court; and Colorado District Attorney George Brauchler, who successfully prosecuted the Aurora Movie Theater shooter in 2015.
At the 2009 Prosecutors’ Conference, George received the Kentucky Outstanding County Attorney of the Year award and was recognized for his service as both Woodford County Attorney and KCAA treasurer. George received special distinction for championing and having helped author Kentucky’s Driving Under the Influence (DUI) of Drugs per se law, which became effective in 2010. The DUI-drugs per se law is credited for helping to sharply increase the number of DUI-drugs convictions statewide.
