Perras, and Former US Attorney for the Western District of Kentucky, Russell Coleman. These prosecutors will discuss how they prosecuted the Jeffersontown Kroger racially-motivated shooting in state and federal court. The presenters will walk through the difficulties of the case, lessons learned, and the cooperative effort among the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office, the US Attorney’s Office, and the Department of Justice, providing a blueprint for other jurisdictions who may be facing similar cases and not know where to start or what resources exist in the area of hate crime prosecutions. Attendees will be afforded an opportunity at the end of the presentation to ask the presenters questions.
