Gov. Matt Mead announced Friday that he has chosen Campbell County prosecutor William J. Edelman to fill a district court judge position in Johnson County.
Edelman was named one of three finalists that were presented to the governor last month to fill the vacancy in 4th Judicial District. The vacancy was created by the Legislature earlier this year when it decided to create another judgeship for the district.
Edelman has been working as a lawyer since he graduated from law school in 1991. In addition to his work as a prosecutor, he has worked in private practice and as a public defender.
The Sheridan native applied for his first judge position two years ago when Campbell County Circuit Court Judge William Edwards retired. He made the list of finalists for that position but was not appointed.
