Carol Crews announces her candidacy for Prosecuting Attorney of the 20th Judicial District, which includes Faulkner, Van Buren and Searcy counties.

Crews is currently the Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for the 20th Judicial District.

She is responsible for prosecuting major crimes, particularly crimes against children, homicide and violent crimes, as well as overseeing a team of attorneys and staff.

Crews has been a prosecutor for 10 years, having also spent time prosecuting juvenile crime, property and financial crimes. She was Senior Trial Attorney before being promoted to Chief Deputy.

"In my opinion, the people of this county trust the prosecutor’s office to work tirelessly with law enforcement to protect the children in our community," Crews said to the Log Cabin in May. "That is a responsibility we do not take lightly. A defense attorney once criticized our office, on the record in court, for being too tough on murderers and sex offenders. But that’s the essence of what we strive for; being a community who holds accountable those who commit the worst crimes against the most vulnerable among us."

Prosecuting Attorney Cody Hiland told the Log Cabin in May 2017: "Carol is tough, she’s talented, she’s ethical and she understands this office exists to seek justice for our victims, not to feel sorry for criminals who prey on our community. She was born to be prosecuting attorney."

In her spare time, Crews enjoys spending time with her family and friends, baking and traveling. She is involved in her church, Fellowship Bible, where she volunteers in the Children’s ministry.

Crews lives in Conway with her husband, Jordan, and their son, Jackson.
