EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Gov. Kate Brown has appointed Karrie McIntyre to fill a vacancy in Lane County Circuit Court.

The Eugene-based lawyer replaces Cynthia Carlson, who retired last year. An appointment was expected before spring, but was delayed after John Kitzhaber resigned as governor.

The Register-Guard reports (https://is.gd/Rhx5Rd ) that Brown reopened the application process.

Brown said in a statement that McIntyre has expertise in criminal law, juvenile law and family law, and will make an outstanding judge.

McIntyre worked an assistant district attorney from 2000 to 2006. She also spent several years training law enforcement personnel on constitutional law, criminal law, and juvenile law, while also handling a domestic relations practice in Eugene.

McIntyre earned a Bachelor of Science degree in forestry from Oregon State University and her law degree from the University of Oregon School of Law.
