| TERESA HENSLEY|
Upon graduation from Raymond-Peculiar high school, Hensley earned her undergraduate degree at William Jewell College and her J.D. from the University of Missouri in Kansas City. Before becoming Cass County prosecutor,
Hensley was a partner and practicing attorney for 14 years with the Hensley Law Firm in Raymore.
She has also served as a Raymore Alderman, and as a member of the Hope Haven Board, the Raymore Planning and Zoning board, and the Missouri Child Abuse and Neglect Review board.
Hensley was defeated by incumbent Vicky Hartzler. Hensley ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House to represent Missouri's 4th District. Hensley ran as a Democratic candidate unopposed in the Democratic primary.
We visited her website but, the only reference we could find to the issues wqas this:
"As a former prosecutor, I saw the pain and the devastation families experience when they’re the victims of violent crime. I saw parents who lost children to drunk drivers, and children who lost their innocence to abuse. But I also saw the power of justice in action. I saw people begin to put their lives back together after justice was served in a court of law.
That’s why I’m running. I have a unique understanding of the power and importance of the Office of the Attorney General. As the state’s top prosecutor, I will seek justice with honesty and integrity for Missouri’s families."
