Zach Throneberry announced his candidacy for Prosecuting Attorney for the Twentieth Judicial District on Friday. The district serves the people of Faulkner, Van Buren and Searcy counties.

Throneberry is a Conway native and former Wampus Cat. After graduating from Conway High School, he earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Central Arkansas.

Throneberry then received his Juris Doctorate from the University of Arkansas School of Law in Fayetteville.

Throneberry spent the past three years serving as a deputy prosecutor for the Twelfth Judicial District of Arkansas, where he gained significant experience prosecuting drug crimes, property crimes and violent crimes.

Returning home to Faulkner County had always been Throneberry’s desire.

"I enjoyed my work and gained significant experience while in Fort Smith, but my goal has always been to serve the people here at home," he said.

Throneberry currently resides in Conway where he is establishing his law practice.

He said he looks forward to serving the people of the Twentieth Judicial District with fairness and impartiality.
