Attorney Noted for Response to DUIs

When Bowling Green Police Department Officer Ronnie Ward walks into Warren District Court to testify against someone he has arrested for driving under the influence, he is confident that Assistant County Attorney Jill Justice is well-prepared for the prosecution. Justice oversees the DUI division in the Warren County Attorney’s Office, prosecuting the majority of people charged here with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Last year in Warren County, 1,075 people were convicted of DUI, according to a recently released Kentucky State Police study. The high number of convictions places Warren County among the highest per capita in DUI convictions in the state.
