Judge Kori Ashley
On June 6, 2020 Kori Ashley was appointed by Governor Tony Evers to serve as a Circuit Court Judge, Branch 19 and now presides over misdemeanor court. She was sworn in by Chief Judge Mary Triggiano and her uncle, Judge Carl Ashley, on September 13, 2020. As a judge, Kori strives everyday to represent a system that is approachable and not intimidating.
“Kori Ashley will be a dynamic judge who pushes for real change. We know that the criminal justice system is broken, and that it has an overwhelming disproportionate impact on people of color. As an attorney, Ashley has worked tirelessly to correct this. Now she’ll do so on the bench.”
