Adam Cart announces intention to run for Commonwealth Attorney

Adam Cart has announced his intention to run for Commonwealth Attorney for the 46th Judicial Circuit, which covers Breckinridge, Grayson and Meade Counties.

Cart said he is a 2007 graduate of Eastern Kentucky University and a 2010 graduate of Northern Kentucky University’s Salmon P. Chase College of Law, where he graduated Cum Laude, and was a member of the Northern Kentucky Law Review.

He said he began his legal career in 2010 as a judicial clerk in the 14th Judicial Circuit for then-Circuit Judge Robert Johnson, who now sits on the Kentucky Court of Appeals. He was also a staff attorney for the Department of Public Advocacy from 2012-2013.

Since January 2013, he has been an attorney with the law firm of Lewis & Preston, in Elizabethtown, focusing primarily on criminal law and domestic relations.

Cart said he has practiced law extensively in Breckinridge, Grayson, and Meade Counties on cases involving all types of criminal offenses. He is a member of the Criminal Law Division of the Kentucky Bar Association.

Cart said, “If elected, I am committed to working closely with our local law enforcement officers to provide fair and accurate prosecution of citizens charged with criminal offenses, as well as upholding the important constitutional principles guaranteed to those accused with crimes and not convicted.”

Cart is the son of Steve and Sherry Cart of Brandenburg. He lives in Ekron, in Meade County, and is a member of the Meade County Young Leaders Network. He and his wife Sarah have an 11-month- old son, Byron Scott Cart.
