Sonneman candidate for Third District Judge seat (04/28/2013)
By Sarah Squires

Winona County Attorney Karin Sonneman is one of three candidates selected for consideration for a Third Judicial District Judge position in Fillmore County. The position will be open following Judge Robert R. Benson’s retirement.

“I am humbled and honored to be selected as a finalist for the judgeship,” said Sonneman of her candidacy.

The Commission on Judicial Selection announced on April 12 that Sonneman was one of three candidates it had recommended to Gov. Mark Dayton for consideration for the seat. Dayton’s selection is expected to be announced soon.

Sonneman is serving the second year of her first term as County Attorney, following two decades of serving as a public defender and private attorney in Winona. She is a graduate of William Mitchell College of Law and holds a Master’s Degree in Agricultural Economics from the University of Minnesota, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from the University of Maryland. She has served as an adjunct professor at both Winona State University and Saint Mary’s University.

Other candidates for the Judge position are Richard Jackson, lead attorney for the Special Prosecution Unit in the Olmsted County Attorney’s Office, and Matthew Opat, a private attorney in Chatfield, Minn.

Minnesota’s Third Judicial District includes Winona, Fillmore, Dodge, Freeborn, Houston, Mower, Olmsted, Rice, Steele, Wabasha and Waseca counties.
