Eastern District U.S. Attorney Robert M. Duncan, Jr. resigns

Robert M. Duncan, Jr.

“It has been a true honor and privilege to lead this Office, an office that has a demonstrated commitment to fairness and justice, and a long history of handling tough and important cases,” stated Duncan.  “I began my career in this Office nearly sixteen years ago as an Assistant United States Attorney and have been blessed to work with many talented and dedicated men and women along the way.

I would like to thank my colleagues in the Office for their hard work and commitment in support of our mission.  We are fortunate to have so many dedicated and professional attorneys and support staff, who make our Office successful.”

“Throughout my career, I have also been privileged to work with our law enforcement partners at the federal, state, and local levels.  These brave men and women selflessly serve and protect the citizens of the Eastern District of Kentucky and beyond.  I have been honored to partner with them in the protection of the public and the pursuit of justice.”

“I am proud of the work we have undertaken during my tenure as United States Attorney – important work on behalf of the citizens of the Eastern District of Kentucky.  In partnership with our law enforcement colleagues, we have implemented efforts to reduce violent crime; we have fought to disrupt the flow of deadly drugs, including opioids and methamphetamine, into our communities; we have combatted fraud and public corruption; we have sought justice for victims, and we have endeavored to faithfully enforce the law.”

“We’ve implemented these efforts despite several challenges, including the longest federal government shutdown in history and a global pandemic that has upended our lives.  While there is always more to be done, I am proud of what we have accomplished.”
