CNN legal analyst and attorney Asuncion "Sunny" Hostin is the featured speaker tonight at the bi-annual Kuykendall Conn Dinner hosted by the Marion County Bar Association.

Seats are still available.

Earning her J.D. from the University of Notre Dame School of Law, Hostin joined CNN from the Fox News Channel, where she was seen weekly on The O'Reilly Factor's "Is It Legal?" segment. She is also a managing director of business intelligence and investigations at Kroll, where she leads teams of investigators from throughout the world as they investigate fraud and corruption. Hostin previously served as an assistant U.S. attorney in Washington, D.C., where she was received a Special Achievement Award for her work as a child sex-crimes prosecutor. She also served as a trial attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice's Antitrust Division.

The MCBA hosts this event in honor of Rufus Kuykendall and Harriette Bailey-Conn. Hon. Kuykendall was one of the first African-Americans to be elected judge in Marion County. Bailey-Conn was the first woman and the first African-American to be appointed Public Defender of Indiana by the Indiana Supreme Court. The event celebrates the achievements of it members, legal entities, and community leaders who greatly impact the lives of people historically underrepresented in the legal climate. It is the association's signature fundraiser.

The event begins with a silent auction at 5:30 p.m. with dinner at 6:30 p.m. at Broadmoor Country Club, 2155 Kessler Blvd., West Drive, Indianapolis. Tickets are $50 per person at the door.

  1. why is the State trying to play GOD? Automatic sealing of a record is immoral. People should have the right to decide how to handle a record. the state is playing GOD. I have searched for decades, then you want me to pay someone a huge price to contact my son. THIS is extortion and gestapo control. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW.

  2. I haven't made some of the best choices in the last two years I have been to marion county jail 1 and two on three different occasions each time of release dates I've spent 48 to 72 hours after date of release losing a job being denied my freedom after ordered please help

  3. Out here in Kansas, where I now work as a government attorney, we are nearing the end of a process that could have relevance in this matter: "Senate Bill 45 would allow any adult otherwise able to possess a handgun under state and federal laws to carry that gun concealed as a matter of course without a permit. This move, commonly called constitutional carry, would elevate the state to the same club that Vermont, Arizona, Alaska and Wyoming have joined in the past generation." More reading here: http://www.guns.com/2015/03/18/kansas-house-panel-goes-all-in-on-constitutional-carry-measure/ Time to man up, Hoosiers. (And I do not mean that in a sexist way.)

  4. This is why it is important to consider Long term care insurance. For you and for your loved ones

  5. I am terrified to see Fracking going on not only in Indiana but in Knox county. Water is the most important resource we have any where. It will be the new gold, and we can't live without it and we can live without gold. How ignorant are people?
