LAFOLLETTE, TN. (WLAF)- The South Campbell County Rotary Club heard from Eighth Judicial Assistant District Attorney Lindsey C. Cadle at Tuesday’s luncheon at the LaFollette United Methodist Church.
Cadle has been working with the Eighth Judicial District Attorney’s office for several years.
“She’s been an asset to our community and is a member of the child protective investigative team and integral to what we do at the Children’s Center,” said Melissa Cain, who introduced Cadle on Tuesday.
Cadle spoke about her role in child abuse cases in Campbell County. She has a wide array of experience in these types of cases and has been a practicing attorney for 20 years.
“Part of my role is to sit on the child investigative team. This team is made up of representatives from law enforcement, the Children’s Center and other agencies. Our team meets once a month to discuss cases and decide the best course of action, both prosecutorial and how to help these kids through this. I couldn’t do my job without the Children’s Center. Our children’s advocacy center is so important to these kids,” said Cadle.
Cadle spoke on the importance of the Campbell County Children’s Center and its role in helping abused children.
The Children’s Center is a child advocacy center that was founded in 2001 to provide a safe haven for sexually and physically abused children. The main office is in Campbell County with satellite offices in Claiborne and Union counties.
The Campbell County Children’s Center will be holding its annual fundraiser on Aug. 24 at the Ball Farm Event Center. The Children’s Center is still seeking banner sponsors for this event.
