MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - "I am tremendously honored by my appointment," said new Montgomery Muncipal Court Judge Milton Westry Tuesday. Mayor Todd Strange and the Montgomery City Council approved the appointment.
"When I started my career as a prosecutor in the Montgomery District Attorney's office in 1992, I never dreamed that I would ever be a Judge at any level," Westry said. "I wanted only to have a positive impact on the lives of the victims that I represented, and the defendants who expressed remorse for their acts."
Westry will now serve on the judicial level.
"I am humbled, and recognize the awesome reponsibility of fairness that I have to all of the Citizens of Montgomery who will have cases before me," he said.
