Governor Appoints New First Judicial District Judge

CHEYENNE, Wyo. –  Governor Matt Mead has selected Steve Sharpe as the new First Judicial District Judge for Laramie County. Sharpe will fill the seat vacated when Governor Mead appointed Judge Michael Davis to the Wyoming Supreme Court.

“I had the pleasure of hiring Steve at the U.S. Attorney’s Office and saw his work first hand. He has a broad range of trial experience – both civil and criminal and he has a strong academic background. Steve also has a great respect for the U.S. and Wyoming Constitutions,” Governor Mead said.

Sharpe is currently an Assistant U.S. Attorney – District of Wyoming. Previously Sharpe was the High Intensity Drug Area Attorney, a Deputy District Attorney and he has worked in private practice. Sharpe has a record of public service including volunteering with the Special Olympics.

“It is humbling to be selected and an honor to be given the opportunity to serve the people of Laramie County,” Sharpe said. “Justice Davis set a high bar and I will strive to continue the high standards that he set.”
