To the editor:

Commonwealth Attorney Douglas R. Wright was a man of true compassion and strength. Working with Doug was both an honor and a privilege. Doug always searched for ways to ensure the protection of children and sought justice when kids had been victimized.

 Early in his term he committed himself to utilizing the multidisciplinary approach of investigating child abuse. It was in this capacity that our team at the Northern Kentucky Children’s Advocacy Center had the extraordinary experience of working alongside Doug Wright.

Doug not only prosecuted cases, he stood as a colleague with investigators to understand the work they had done, and guided, mentored and learned from community professionals.

 It was his dedication to children and commitment to do the right thing --because it was the right thing to do-- that was evident in every child abuse case he prosecuted.  

 Doug’s fervor for life and care for others were apparent through his infectious smile and quick wit. He was a man of honor and integrity, a true advocate for the children and victims he served. 

Doug loved and diligently represented his community and now that community has suffered an irreplaceable loss. At NKCAC, we value the memory of our work with Doug as well as the legacy of his dedicated service to the children of our community.
