Governor names former parole officer as magistrate judge in Lincoln County


SANTA FE, New Mexico — A former parole officer from southern New Mexico has been appointed a magistrate judge in Lincoln County by Gov. Susana Martinez.

Katie Lund of Ruidoso fills a magistrate court vacancy created by the resignation of Lorena LaMay, who was named to the court in 2009 by then Gov. Bill Richardson.

Martinez said Tuesday that Lund previously worked for the Corrections Department as a probation and parole officer and has served as a juvenile probation and parole officer with the Children, Youth and Families Department.

Lund earned a master's degree in criminal justice from New Mexico State University.

Magistrate courts handle a wide variety of cases, including civil lawsuits, misdemeanors, drunken driving and traffic violations.
