Judge Mary Windom today announced that she will run for re-election in the Republican primary for Place 1 on the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals. Judge Windom has been elected by her fellow judges to serve as  Presiding Judge since 2012.

First elected in 2008, Judge Windom has served the people of Alabama for 11 years on a platform based upon conservative principles with fairness to every citizen. “I have been honored to serve the people of Alabama on the Court of Criminal Appeals,” said Judge Mary Windom. “I will continue to stand by the two promises I made when I first ran for office. I will apply the law as it is written and not make law from the bench. I will look after the rights of all, most importantly the victims of crime.”

Windom graduated Magna Cum Laude from Jones School of Law and is admitted to practice in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Alabama, in the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, and in the Supreme Court of the United States.

Prior to joining the Court, Judge Windom served as an Assistant United States Attorney and Deputy State Attorney General. She presently serves on the Alabama Supreme Court Advisory Committee on the Rules of Criminal Procedure. She has also served on the Chief Justice’s Commission on Professionalism. Additionally, Judge Windom has served as a Special Justice for the Alabama Supreme Court.
