Gov. Scott Walker has appointed two long-time prosecutors to vacancies on the Milwaukee County Bench.
The governor announced on Wednesday that he had tapped Audrey Skwierawski to fill a spot vacant left by Judge John DiMotto’s recent retirement.
Skwierawski, who earned her law degree in 1992 from Washington D.C.-based Georgetown University Law Center, is an assistant attorney general at the Wisconsin Department of Justice in Madison. She has also been an assistant district attorney in Milwaukee County.
Walker also announced on Wednesday that he had chosen attorney Laura Crivello to fill the position now held by Judge Jeffrey Kremers, who is retiring.
Crivello, who earned her law degree in 1993 from Marquette University Law School, has been an assistant district attorney in Milwaukee County for more than twenty years. She is captain of the prosecution team for Milwaukee’s High Intensity of Drug Trafficking Area, which specializes in dismantling drug-trafficking organizations and violent gangs.Follow @erikastrebel
