Doug Fain, right, is sworn in as
Jessamine Circuit Clerk by Jessamine circuit Judge Hunter Daugherty. Mr.
Fain is past president of the Kentucky Circuit Clerk’s Association and is
currently the Legislative Chair. Mr. Fain serves as a member of the
Kentucky Criminal Justice Council and was named by Supreme Court Justice
Joseph Lambert to be the only Circuit Clerk to sit on a Jury Review
Commission headed up by Justice James Keller.
The Kentucky Circuit Clerk’s Association endorsed Kentucky House Bill 228
(Family Friendly Jury Duty legislation), filed for the 2005 Session of
Kentucky’s General Assembly.
Passage of House Bill 228 would allow primary caregivers of children under
the age of 6, and those that care for an elderly or disabled relative to be
excused from jury duty, upon request.
The Kentucky Circuit Clerk’s Association believes this legislation will
help ensure that jury deferral policies are more consistent throughout all
of Kentucky’s court jurisdictions.
