Wyoming Judge Looks Forward to Challenge of High Court
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — After 32 years in the criminal justice field, Laramie County District Judge Michael Davis is moving to the state’s highest court.
He was appointed in August to serve as a Wyoming Supreme Court justice by Gov. Matt Mead.
Davis tells the Associated Press that he takes his responsibility of making decisions on each case seriously and knows that every decision is critical to someone.
Davis says each sentencing decision requires looking at a number of factors, such as if the individual is a threat to society or if they can be rehabilitated.
He says judges also have to be balanced in their decisions.
Davis will begin at the Supreme Court sometime in October.
