Tim King

Timothy King, a prosecutor in the Muskogee County District Attorney’s office, has been named District Judge, replacing Mike Norman, who passed away early this year.

“Mr. King’s wide-ranging experience as a military officer, private practice attorney, and public servant in the United States Department of State and, most recently, as First Assistant District Attorney, has more than prepared him to assume the role of District Court Judge,” said Gov. Kevin Stitt, in naming King to the post. “The people of Muskogee County will benefit greatly from having a man with Mr. King’s compassion, intellect, and work-ethic on the bench.”

A retired officer in the Oklahoma Army National Guard, King currently serves as the First Assistant District Attorney for Muskogee County where he focuses on criminal litigation. King has prior experience as the Chief of Party for the Rule of Law Stabilization Program, Senior Democracy and Rule of Law Advisor for the United States Department of State-Bureau of Eastern Affairs, Deputy Chief of Team and Advisor to the Ministry of the Interior for the Afghanistan Justice Sector Support Program, and a private attorney in Muskogee. King holds a Bachelor’s of Science in business administration from Oklahoma State University, a Juris Doctor from the University of Tulsa College of Law, and a Master of Law from Widener University.

“I am humbled and honored by Governor Stitt’s trust and confidence,” said King. “I look forward to serving my fellow Oklahomans with dedication, independence, integrity, and impartiality.”

State Rep. Avery Frix quickly congratulated King.

“Mr. King has long served the people of Muskogee County with wisdom and fairness,” he said. “Now we will benefit from his dedication as a judge.”

District Attorney Orvil Loge said King will be tough to replace.

“I am proud of his service to the district attorney’s office and our community,” Loge said. “He served with honor and distinction. I will immediately begin the search to replace him.”
