The judges of the 22nd Judicial Circuit of Missouri have appointed Matthew C. Melton commissioner of the circuit’s Drug Court.
In a meeting April 16, the judges selected Melton from among three finalists, also including Scott A. Millikan and Michael L. Walton.
Melton, an attorney with the Missouri Public Defender’s Office, was the office’s Drug Court attorney from 2006 to 2007. He graduated from Saint Louis University School of Law in 2006 after completing a bachelors degree at Truman State University in 2003.
Melton replaces James Sullivan, who was appointed circuit judge in February.
