Dr. Jamie Carter was named the 2016 Lee University Department of History, Humanities and Political Science Distinguished Alumna of the Year. Carter serves as the assistant attorney general for the District of Columbia, but was instrumental in establishing a so-called “good-faith exception” in Tennessee, which allows unconstitutionally-obtained evidence to be presented in court if collected “in good faith” by law enforcement. A graduate of the University of Tennessee College of Law, Carter has also held positions as Knox County assistant district attorney and acting assistant district attorney in Davidson County. The Cleveland Banner has the story.
