Craig Croom, a Wake County district court judge for more than a decade, has been given a new job by the governor.
Gov. Bev Perdue appointed Croom a Special Superior Court Judge.
“Judge Croom was a distinguished prosecutor and has been a valuable member of the judiciary,” Perdue said in a prepared statement. “He will be a great addition to the superior court.”
Croom, a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill and N.C. Central University law school, has been a Wake County district court judge since 1999. He also has worked as an assistant district attorney for Wake County, been a clerk for Judge Jack Cozort on the North Carolina Court of Appeals, served as a deputy sheriff for the Wake County Sheriff’s Department and been a paramedic in Orange County.
