Kentucky Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (KACDL) was established in 1986 to counteract problems with the drafting of Kentucky's Truth-in-Sentencing law. Since that time, KACDL has continued to provide legislators with a more complete picture of how new laws impact the administration of criminal justice in Kentucky.

Over the past 25 years KACDL has expanded its purpose to include networking, advocacy and educational opportunities for Kentucky criminal defense lawyers. Donna Brown is the Executive Director of the organization.
