Deputy District Attorney General Sandra Donaghy will seek the 10th District Criminal Court judge seat as a Republican in the May primary.

Campaign officials said, "Ms. Donaghy, a career prosecutor, has resolved more than 10,000 cases.  She personally conducted 197 jury trials and none of her verdicts were ever reversed. This important fact verifies her expertise in knowing and following the law.  She handled the worst and most complicated criminal cases--murder, rape, robbery, drugs, fraud, child abuse, and many more.  She fought tirelessly to eliminate violent crime, gangs, and public corruption.

"Ms. Donaghy’s professional work spans 30-years as criminal lawyer, prosecutor, defense attorney, and appointed judge. This qualifies her as the most highly skilled candidate and positions her for a smooth transition to Criminal Court Judge. Her professional and ethical conduct will promote public confidence in the court system."

Among hundreds of prosecutors in Tennessee, Mrs. Donaghy, became the only person to twice receive Tennessee’s highest honor, the President’s Award, for exceptional service to the Criminal Justice System (2005 and 2013), presented by the Tennessee District Attorneys’ Conference.

She said she promises the constituents of the 10th Judicial District to resolve every case with fairness, respect, and timely management of the criminal caseload.  She looks forward to meeting her neighbors in the 10th Judicial District as she pursues election to Criminal Court judge.      

Counties in the 10th Judicial District include Bradley, McMinn, Monroe and Polk.
