According to the offices of Hopkins County Attorney Todd P’Pool, Karey L. Deardorff was appointed as an Assistant Hopkins County Attorney by P’Pool on Monday, November 29th. Following this decision, Deardorff was sworn into her new position by Judge Jim Brantley of the Hopkins County Circuit Court today, December 1st.

Deardorff was previously employed by the Department of Public Advocacy in Hopkins County, and as Todd P’Pool noted, “Karey Deardorff is an excellent trial attorney and will give the people of Hopkins County outstanding service.”

Additionally, Deardorff is a long time resident of Hopkins County and graduated from Hopkins County Central High School. She also went on to earn a Bachelor of Science from the University of Kentucky and her law degree from Southern Illinois University. She is also the daughter of well-known Madisonville orthodontist, Dr. John Roy.

In regard to Oglesby’s decision to leave the position in pursuit of his own practice, P’Pool said, “He’s a dear friend and I wish him great success. I don’t know if he’s going to keep his private practice in our office or if he’s going solo, but regardless of his decision, he has given great service to the people of Hopkins County and his future is very bright.”
