OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Gov. Brad Henry has appointed two judges for Tulsa County and one for Pushmataha County.
Henry announced the appointments Tuesday of 58-year-old Carlos Chappelle and 54-year-old Kurt G. Glassco to fill two Tulsa County judicial seats left open by retirements.
Chappelle has practiced law in Tulsa for 28 years while Glassco has been in private practice since 1986. Before that, Glassco was an assistant district attorney in Tulsa County and the general counsel for then-Gov. George Nigh.
In Pushmataha County, Henry appointed Jana Kay Wallace as an associate district judge, filling a vacancy left by a retirement.
Wallace currently handles civil cases in private practice and also serves as an assistant district attorney for Pushmataha County.
Henry's selections came from candidates submitted by the state's Judicial Nominating Commission.
