Kentucky Prosecutors Institute
Commonwealth Attorney Tom Wine is pleased to announce that Emily Wessel and Lashae Richie recently completed training with the Kentucky Prosecutor’s Institute (KPI) held March 29 to April 1 in Lexington, Kentucky. Ms. Wessel was sworn in as an assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney in October 2019 and Ms. Richie was sworn in as an assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney in April 2020.
KPI is a four day long trial skills course for new prosecutors. Senior prosecutors from around the Commonwealth, as well as national speakers, spend time mentoring the class attendees in areas such as voir dire, opening statement, direct and cross examination, and closing arguments. Students actively participate in courtroom exercises and role play and have work assignments to be completed each evening. Experienced faculty provided feedback.
This was a great opportunity to provide practical experience during the COVID pandemic when so few live trials have been held.
Congratulations Emily and Lashae!
