“It is an honor to be selected to participate in this conference and specially to serve on a panel for my peers,” Webb said. “As a trial lawyer, I look forward to sharing my insight with other defense attorneys as well as hearing discussions from my colleagues.”
Webb served in the House of Representatives from 1999-2009 and has served in the Senate since 2009. She earned her A.A.S. and B.S. degrees from Morehead State University and her J.D. from Chase College of Law at Northern Kentucky University.

KACDL is the only organized, statewide, all-inclusive group of criminal defense lawyers in Kentucky. According to information released by the organization, they are committed to penal code reform, to fairness and justice for all citizens accused of crimes in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and to unwavering service to the criminal defense community through effective and supportive networking, advocacy and education.
Additional panel topics will be “Case Decisions and Recent Developments in the Appellate Courts,” “How to Try a Confession Case,” and “Ethics for the Criminal Defense Lawyer.” Larry Simon, KACDL president, will give the opening and closing remarks.
