Gov. Scott Walker has appointed Barron County Assistant District Attorney Maureen Boyle as Branch 3 judge to fill the vacancy left by the departure of Judge James Babbitt. She will begin the first week of December.
"Maureen Boyle has earned an outstanding reputation as a prosecutor in Barron County," said Walker. "She is an experienced criminal lawyer who has handled hundreds of cases, and I know she'll bring that same commitment to justice and the Constitution on the bench."
Boyle said she is very pleased to be able to continue working in the Barron County Circuit Court system and with the fine people who work in it. "Barron County is a wonderful place to be," she said.
Boyle moved to Rice Lake in 2008 to serve as assistant district attorney in Barron County. She previously worked as an assistant district attorney in Walworth and Rock counties. She was assistant director of the Resource Center on Impaired Driving at UW Law School from 1998-2001. She has taught classes to prosecutors and police at the National Advocacy Center, the UW Law School, the Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College and the Prosecutor's Seminar on OWI.
In a letter of recommendation for Boyle, Barron County District Attorney Angela Beranek wrote, "As an ADA, Ms. Boyle has handled an enormous case load with competence and the highest level of professionalism. She has successfully prosecuted countless jury trials resulting in convictions in very difficult sexual assault, burglary and domestic violence cases. She is organized, always prepared and a pleasure to work with."
Professor Ralph Cagle of the UW Law School said of Boyle, "She is well known as a very able trial lawyer, administrator and practical-minded professional who carries out her responsibilities as a member of the justice system with great distinction."
Boyle earned a bachelor's degree in journalism and a juris doctor from UW-Madison. Before going to law school, she was a research assistant for NBC Sports at the 1988 Seoul Olympics, a public relations manager for the U.S. Canoe & Kayak Team and a reporting intern at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, stated a news release issued by Doyle's office.
