New District Judge for Oklahoma County
This Monday, Governor Brad Henry named Donald Deason as the new district judge for the 7th Judicial District in Oklahoma County. This appointment comes after several months of review of many highly qualified individuals who were vying for the judicial position.
A graduate of the University of Oklahoma law school, Deason was an assistant district attorney in Oklahoma County for 20 years. Deason has served as a special district court judge since 1999. The 52-year-old Deason replaces David Harbour, who resigned due to health issues. Deason is married and has two children.
