The four met a noon deadline on Monday, Oct. 16, to apply to the Trial Court Vacancy Commission, which will recommend three finalists to Gov. Bill Haslam for the vacancy created by the retirement of Criminal Court Judge James Beasley Jr. at the end of this year.

The applicants are:

• Dean DeCandia, assistant U.S. attorney of Memphis

Robert Harris, attorney in private practice of Germantown

• Jennifer J. Mitchell, attorney in private practice of Memphis

• Jennifer S. Nichols, deputy district attorney general of Memphis

The commission will interview the four applicants at a Nov. 6 session at the Marriott Memphis East hotel, 5795 Poplar Ave., starting at 9 a.m. The interviews are open to the public.

The commission will then vote Nov. 6 on a list of three finalists to send to the governor.
