Mull throws hat in Clark County Prosecutor contest

(Continued)

CLARK COUNTY —

Mull said curtailing the drug supply in Clark County is a focal issue for him because he feels drug-related criminal activity is responsible for more than 90 percent of all crime in the county.

Mull’s experience includes working with the board of directors of a drug task force, which allowed him to have close interaction with area law enforcement officers.

“Narcotics officers would tell me that they would hear on the streets that a lot of people wouldn’t want to deal cocaine here in Clark County because I had such a reputation for sending those people to prison, and they would want to go over to Louisville to deal the drugs because they didn’t want to do it here,” he said.

Mull is confident that by targeting high-level offenders, he can have an impact on the county’s overall crime rate.

“You can make a real impact on the drugs in the community if you focus on the dealers and get those individuals off the streets,” he said. “And I know how to do that and that would be my No. 1 focus.”

Mull said he also has the experience and drive to go after violent offenders and see that they are properly sentenced.

“I will continue to target violent and dangerous criminals for strict and severe prison sentences,” he said. “I’m talking about those who murder, rape, or [commit] child molesting, burglaries. I have done that in the past. I’ve performed many trials in those cases and have sent many of those people to prison.”

As prosecutor, Mull said he would also work to convict lower-level offenders who commit theft and burglaries.

“I want to really put a focus on thieves, the people who steal,” he said. “There seems to be a culture with a lot of people in the community, and they think that because theft is a low-level offense they can just do that at will, and, if you look at the courts, there are people with 10, 15, 20 theft cases.”
