The "NEW" This Week In Kenton Circuit Court!
Newsletter Now Matches New Website!  Rob speech  
  
We hope you like the new look of our CAO newsletter "This Week In Kenton Circuit Court."  Money seized from convicted drug dealers was used to pay for a professionally designed website that launched in January.  Using the same funds, and no taxpayer dollars, our newsletter has been retooled to match to professional appearance of our website.  We hope you will find both the website and the newsletter easier to navigate and more visually appealing.  You will still get the same great content detailing the work done by our prosecutors each week and will also receive the added benefit of an interactive website.
  
You can check out the new & improved Online Office of the Kenton County Commonwealth's Attorney by visiting: 

 

In addition to the new website and newsletter, the Kenton County Commonwealth's Attorney's office maintains a strong presence on social media sites to better inform and engage the local community. You can follow the office's activities on its Twitter feed at @KentonCAO and on its Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/KentonCAO
