Gov. Kevin Stitt has appointed Tulsa County District Judge William Musseman Jr. to the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals.

“I have every confidence he will continue to diligently serve Oklahomans in this new role,” Stitt said in a statement Friday announcing the appointment.

“I am honored to have earned the support and confidence of the governor and look forward to serving the State of Oklahoma in this new judicial role,” Musseman said in the statement.

Musseman is a former assistant district attorney and a special district judge. He was named a Tulsa County district judge in 2011.

He replaces Judge Dana Kuehn, who was appointed by Stitt to the Oklahoma Supreme Court in July 2021.
