Born in Atlanta, Georgia, Carnes is the daughter of Georgia state court judge Charles Carnes. She received the A.B. from the University of Georgia in 1972 and a J.D. from the University of Georgia School of Law in 1975. She was a law clerk to the Hon. Lewis R. Morgan, U.S. Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit from 1975 to 1977. She was an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Georgia, from 1978 to 1990 and was Appellate Chief of the Criminal Division from 1987 to 1989.
