CHARLESTON, West Virginia — Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin has appointed an Elkins attorney to succeed a circuit court judge who resigned after admitting having an affair with a corrections official.
Tomblin announced David H. Wilmoth's appointment to the Randolph County judgeship Friday. Wilmoth succeeds Jaymie Wilfong, who resigned in November.
Wilmoth is a graduate of Marshall University and West Virginia University College of Law. He began his legal career in 1991 at Jory & Smith before establishing his own law firm in 1997.
Wilfong resigned after the West Virginia Supreme Court suspended her for having a two-year affair with William Travis Carter. At the time, Carter was director of the North Central Community Corrections program in Elkins. He resigned from that position in December 2013.
