Governor Rick Perry has appointed a replacement for Williamson County Judge Ken Anderson.
Stacy Mathews will be judge of the 277th District in Williamson County until the next general election. She's currently an Assistant District Attorney in Williamson County and formerly an Assistant District Attorney in Harris County.
Ken Anderson resigned from the bench last month. He is being investigated for withholding evidence in the murder trial of Michael Morton when Anderson was a prosecutor.
Morton was exonerated for the murder of his wife after spending 25 years in prison.
