His term begins at midnight on Jan. 4, 2021.

Justice Conley was elected in the November general election to serve the 7th Supreme Court District, which comprises 22 Eastern Kentucky counties. He succeeds Supreme Court Justice Samuel T. Wright III.

“Thanks to all of those people that voted for me and helped me in any way to get to this point,” he said.

Justice Conley will have a traditional in-person investiture ceremony in the Supreme Court Courtroom at the Capitol in Frankfort when it can be done safely amid the pandemic.
