Jack Conway on Crime



Reduce crime via focus on cybercrime against kids

Conway focused on his office's work to reduce crime in Kentucky, mostly through the Cyber Crimes unit aimed at abolishing Internet crimes against children, and his war against prescription drug abuse. "This is the first time that the number of deaths from overdoses is headed downwards," he said, adding that he has spoken to more than 40,000 students about the importance of staying drug free.

Created a Cybercrimes Unit, to crack down on child porn

Jack followed through on his commitment to prosecute child predators and crack down on Internet crimes when he created a Cybercrimes Unit, which has initiated numerous child pornography investigations, eliminated over 68,000 illegal images and videos fro the Internet, and continues to conduct trainings for police and prosecutors. Simultaneously, Jack reduced costs in the Attorney General's office by 26%, setting a strong example by taking a pay cut and giving his official vehicle back to the state.

Execute death-row criminals; appeals are exhausted

Attorney General Jack Conway requested three death warrants this morning [against death-row inmates who have exhausted their appeals]. The figure would double the number of citizens the commonwealth has executed since the death penalty was re-established in 1976. Conway's request to Gov. Beshear to set execution dates for three death row inmates comes just two weeks after the Louisville Courier-Journal ran a series of articles and editorials about the ineffectiveness of Kentucky's death row system.
