Kellie Wingate Campbell will officially leave her job as Lafayette County’s Prosecuting Attorney on July 31st. Click to hear KMZU’s Sarah Scott talk with Campbell:
“This is a move that is geared toward getting our family together in one place,” said Campbell. “My husband has been the Executive Director for the Missouri Symphony in Columbia for a few months now. It’s just time that we are all together in Columbia.”
Campbell said she will open a private practice law firm in Columbia on August 1st. She also said she is a champion of victims’ rights.
“You can’t undo the horrible wrong that has been done, but knowing that you’ve found justice for victims is satisfying,” Campbell added. “It was also a very great experience to work on a 24-year old cold case homicide that was taken to trial. I was able to work along side the Attorney General’s office since that arose out of our county, and it was nice to see justice served after so many years.”
Campbell said she hopes when she leaves on Wednesday that the transition to whomever takes her position will be a smooth one.
