New District Court judge in Montgomery
Audrey A. Creighton, an assistant public defender in Montgomery County, has been appointed a District Court judge.
Governor Martin O’Malley appointed her to fill the vacancy created by the elevation of Judge Cheryl A. McCally to the Circuit Court, the governor's office said in a statement.
She beat out eight other nominees.
Creighton is a past president of the Maryland Hispanic Bar Association. She also teaches at the American University Washington College of Law, which provides a bio of her here.
