Extern Hall of Fame
Our office’s prosecutorial externship program is one of the best in Kentucky and offers a hands-on, aggressive program for externs to work with our staff and attorneys on everything. Many externs have gone on to become Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorneys in our office, work as prosecutors in other parts of Kentucky and in other states, or enter private practice with valuable experience.
This page offers a hall of fame, profiling some of our former externs and where they are working now. If you are profiled and would like to submit more current information, please contact Vanessa Miles at email@example.com.
Hon. Kathleen C. Fischer
Kathleen “K.C.” Fischer externed in our office from May to August 2010 and January to May 2011. K.C. graduated from the University of Cincinnati College of Law in May 2011. After graduating, she was hired as a legal intern at the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office and was sworn in as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney in the Juvenile Division upon passing the bar in October 2011. K.C. prosecutes all types of misdemeanor and felony cases involving juvenile defendants. Currently, K.C. works on getting more serious juvenile cases transferred to adult court so the juvenile defendants are tried and sentenced as adults.
Hon. Megan E. Mersch
