Kevin Sharp Explains Why He Left the Bench

Former Middle District Chief Judge Kevin Sharp spoke to an audience in Nashville this week about why he decided to leave his seat on the U.S. District Court earlier this year, the Nashville Post reports. Sharp told the gathering that he struggled with issues related to mandatory minimums, and it was very difficult to make changes to the justice system from the district court level. Following the presidential election last year, he felt “something is happening” and “I can’t be a part of that if I’m sitting on the bench.”
