NASHVILLE (AP) – Gov. Bill Haslam has named Circuit Judge Timothy Lee Easter of Brentwood to fill a criminal appeals court vacancy created by the retirement of Jerry L. Smith.

Easter, who will take the appeals court bench on Sept. 1, served as an assistant district attorney and in private practice before he was appointed by then-Gov. Don Sundquist in 1998 as judge for the circuit that includes Williamson, Hickman, Lewis and Perry counties.

He has also been a judge in the circuit's drug court, an alternative treatment and sentencing program for non-violent offenders

Easter is a graduate of the Nashville School of Law and earned his undergraduate degree from Lipscomb University, where he has also worked as an adjunct professor.
