Yesterday, a law clerk and former assistant public defender, LaToya Lee, was appointed as Rochester City Court judge by mayor Malik Evans. Previously, Lee served as a law clerk to the Hon. Teresa D. Johnson and the Hon. Nicole D. Morris of Rochester City Court and was an assistant public defender in the Monroe County Public Defender’s Office.
Lee stated; “My promise to the people of Rochester is that I will decide cases fairly, impartially and free of political influence. I have personally witnessed the impact that crime, violence, and substance abuse have on city neighborhoods. It will be my focus to expand the Court’s rehabilitation offerings and to be a zealous advocate for justice. I look forward to serving our community.”
