Judge Debra Jones Running for Alabama Supreme Court
Anniston – Calhoun County Circuit Judge Debra Jones will announce on Wednesday her intent to seek the Republican nomination for the Alabama Supreme Court in 2022.
“I have a proven record of being a conservative judge,” Jones stated. “I have earned a reputation of being honest and fair. I strictly apply the law to everyone equally without fear or favor and treat each person in my courtroom with dignity and respect.”
The 2-term Circuit Judge and former prosecutor has made standing up for the rights of women and children a focal point of her career. She created the Calhoun Cleburne Children’s Advocacy Center. Judge Jones also co-founded a free counseling center for rape victims, and a faith-based domestic violence shelter for women and children.
"As a jury trial judge, I will bring a broad range of courtroom experience to the Alabama Supreme Court,” Jones added. “Judicial experience should matter. I have presided over many complex cases including capital murder, rape, child sexual abuse, medical malpractice and wrongful death.”
Jones graduated from the University of Alabama and the Cumberland School of Law. She and husband, William, have been married for more than 29 years and have been blessed with 5 children and 2 grandchildren.
“I am proud to be born and raised, and educated in Alabama,” Jones said. “It would be my honor to serve the great people of Alabama on its highest court.”
The Wednesday announcement will be on the Calhoun County Courthouse steps at 9am, 25 West 11th Street, Anniston, AL 36207.
