INSTITUTE, WV -

A West Virginia State University professor has been appointed a municipal court judge by the town of Gilbert. Michael Kane, assistant professor of criminal justice, was appointed by the Gilbert Town Council Oct. 15.

Kane said he will hold court every other week in Gilbert and is looking forward to stepping into his new part-time position.

Kane — who teaches Ethics in Criminal Justice, which addresses dilemmas in adjudication — said his experience as a municipal court judge will help him in the classroom.

Kane served in the U.S. Marine Corps. He has served as a police officer in Louisiana and Tennessee and previously worked at the Mt. Olive Correctional Complex in West Virginia. He has been an assistant professor at West Virginia State University for three years.
