OKLAHOMA CITY — Gov. Kevin Stitt announced Sommer Robbins as the associate district judge for Jackson County.
“I am glad to have Sommer serving Jackson County as the associate district judge. Her experience with Oklahoma’s legal system and excellent reputation makes her the best candidate for the job,” Stitt said in a statement.

I’m looking forward to working alongside members of my community to uphold the principles of fairness and justice.”
