A woman with experience as a prosecutor in two local counties has been tapped to fill a judicial vacancy in Guilford. 

Gov. Roy Cooper has appointed Stephanie Reese to fill the Superior Court seat of Judge Joe Craig. 

Craig had served on the bench for 20 years.

Reese is currently serving as an assistant district attorney in Rockingham County. Previously she held a similar position in Guilford County.

In 2018 she ran for District Attorney but lost in the Democratic primary to Avery Crump, who currently holds the office.

Reese is a graduate of Wake Forest University School of Law and has been an adjunct professor at Wake Forest and Elon University’s law schools.
