SEYMOUR— Gov. Greg Abbott appointed Jennifer A. Habert as the 50th Judicial District judge for Baylor, Cottle, King and Knox counties for a term to expire on Dec. 31 that had been held by Bobby D. Burnett of Munday before his death last year.
She took the oath of office from Baylor County Judge Rusty Stafford here last week.
Habert won the primary race for that position back in March in a race with Lina Trevino, the Knox County and City of Munday attorney, and will be on the ballot in November.
Habert has more than 20 years of legal experience and had served as the 50th District Attorney for more than three years and was the Baylor County attorney prior to that.
Habert said she was grateful for the opportunity to serve out the year for the four counties in the 50th Judicial District.
