Sedalia Attorney Kimberly Tanner Announces Run For Pettis County Prosecutor

Kimberly TannerKimberly Tanner, an attorney who has practiced for 11 years in Sedalia, announced this morning (Jan. 3) that she would run as a candidate for Pettis County Prosecutor in the upcoming election.

In a prepared speech, Tanner said she is fed up with the wake of devastation she sees criminal activity has on innocent victims and our community at large.

“As prosecutor, I will sternly pursue convictions and demand punishments in accordance with the desired ethical and moral standards of this community,” Tanner said. “I will maximize the use of Pettis County’s drug court program in the interests of returning transformed and productive citizens to our community.

Tanner also said she’d strongly advocate for and support the implementation of additional treatment court programs. “I believe treatment court programs hold the potential for reducing repeat offenses and saving the county money in terms of correct costs,” she said.

Tanner was born and raised in Sedalia, graduating from Smith-Cotton High School in 1990 and earning degrees from State Fair Community College, University of Central Missouri and the University of Missouri. Tanner went into private practice as an attorney in 2002 and has served on the board of Child Safe of Central Missouri. She has also served as the contract attorney for Pettis County in juvenile abuse, neglect and delinquency cases where parents are entitled to a court appointed attorney.
