O'Rear to run for judicial seat

Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Will O'Rear, who was appointed to the seat by Gov. Bob Riley, will run for the family court seat in 2010.
Riley appointed him to the Place 8 seat in 2008.
O'Rear served as legal counsel to Montgomery County Probate Judge Reese McKinney until he was appointed. He is a former licensed mental health counselor.
The judge will host his first fundraiser on Thursday. He hopes to be elected to a full six-year term.
O'Rear, in a statement, said he started the first juvenile mental health court in Montgomery.
"I plan to expand this program to involve our families with in-home mental health services," he said.
He is handling cases involving divorce, child welfare and juvenile offenses.
