First Assistant Kenton County Commonwealth's Attorney James T. Redwine was named the 2014 Outstanding Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney by the Kentucky Commonwealth's Attorneys Association.
The award was presented at the Commonwealth's Attorneys Winter Conference on Wednesdayby KCAA President and Christian County Commonwealth's Attorney Lynn Pryor and Kenton County Commonwealth's Attorney Rob Sanders who serves as KCAA Secretary.
The KY Commonwealth's Attorneys Association is a statewide organization representing felony prosecutors from each of Kentucky's 57 Judicial Circuits.
"Jim has an outstanding record of service to the Commonwealth but his performance in the last year has been particularly impressive. Jim has successfully prosecuted numerous difficult cases against several murderers and other violent, repeat offenders," said Sanders.
In presenting award, Sanders discussed Redwine's prosecution of convicted murderers Mikel Crumes, Tramonte Rice, Christopher Hill, and Romello Rice, in addition to Alvin McDaniel who was convicted of a shooting on Covington's Eastside.
"Jim is responsible for winning convictions in the most difficult cases, against the most violent offenders, in Kenton County. Our community is safer because of Jim, so it's great to see him recognized by our statewide association for work here in Northern Kentucky," Sanders said.
Redwine announced his candidacy for Kenton County Circuit Judge last fall and is one of five candidates in a field that includes Kathleen Lape, Robert Winter, Jason Hiltz, and Kate Molloy.
