Gov. Larry Hogan on Wednesday appointed a new circuit court judge for Charles County and two new district court judges for Montgomery County.

Hogan’s office announced the appointment of Magistrate Monise A. Brown to serve as a circuit court judge in Charles County.

Patrick J. Mays, a longtime Montgomery County prosecutor, and Michael O. Glynn III, who has served as a Prince George’s County prosecutor, have been appointed to district judge posts in Montgomery County.

“It is my pleasure to appoint these distinguished individuals to serve in our state’s judicial system,” Hogan said in a news release. “I am confident that Mr. Mays, Mr. Glynn, and Magistrate Brown will bring valuable knowledge to the bench and honorably serve the citizens of their respective counties in the years to come.”

The governor’s office provided brief biographies of the new judges:

Brown has been a family law magistrate for eight years and before her appointment served as the executive director of the Maryland Professional Center, which organizes courses and programs for lawyers in the state. She previously served as a prosecutor in Charles County, where she handled paternity and child support cases, and worked in private practice for four years, handling family law and estate issues. She received her J.D. from George Washington University Law School.
