Governor Riley appoints Charles B. Langham as Morgan County District Judge

MONTGOMERY-Governor Bob Riley on Thursday appointed Charles B. Langham, of Decatur, as Morgan County District Judge.

"I am pleased to appoint Charles Langham as Morgan County District Judge," said Governor Riley.  "He has a broad and varied legal background, and is actively involved in his community.  I am confident that he will serve the citizens of Morgan County well."

Langham currently works as an attorney in Morgan County. He previously served as an Assistant District Attorney for Morgan County, and as a former prosecuting attorney for the Alabama Department of Human Resources.

"I am truly honored and humbled by this appointment," said Langham.  "I'm grateful to Governor Riley and Senator Arthur Orr for their tireless efforts in getting this judgeship funded. I look forward to serving the people of Morgan County and working with our outstanding legal community."

Senator Arthur Orr, who represents Morgan County, said, "I am appreciative of Governor Riley committing to fund this important judicial position which has languished since its creation several years ago. It is fulfilling to see this process finally come to a successful end after years of delay and we can give increased attention to other needs in this area."

Langham is a 1971 graduate of the University of Alabama, and also received his Master of Public Administration and Law degree from the University.  He was named the 1990 Humanitarian of the Year by the Decatur Chamber of Commerce and Volunteer of the Year by the Association for Retarded Citizens.  He is a current Board member and past multi-term president of the Morgan-Lawrence County Chapter of the American Red Cross and the Tennessee Valley Outreach Rescue Mission. He has been actively involved in a number of civic and charitable organizations, including the Lions Club, Morgan County Big Brothers & Big Sisters, and the United Way of Morgan County.

The appointment is effective immediately.
