Occupation District Court Judge
I answer yes as I was nominated to the Governor for appointment and was appointed one year ago. I have not been through the review process at this point in my judgeship.
At a minimum, the Constitutional requirements. Plus my experiences as an attorney and in the last year my experiences serving as a District Court Judge.
I support all forms of alternatives with an eye to the least restrictive pre trial that will assure the accused will show up to court hearings, and will not further other crimes especially crimes that will physically harm others.
In our District here in McKinley County, have enough prosecutors and defense Counsel to conduct multiple trial dockets at the same time.
