WEST VALLEY CITY — A new justice court judge has been appointed for West Valley City.
Clintepious T. Gilmore will fill the vacancy left by the Dec. 31 retirement of Judge Keith Stoney. City manager Wayne Pyle announced Gilmore's appointment Monday, but Gilmore must still complete judge orientation and be certified by the Utah Judicial Council.
Gilmore has worked in the city prosecutor's office since 2005, holding the position of assistant chief prosecuting attorney since 2011. Gilmore has also prosecuted cases for the Salt Lake County District Attorney's Office and United States Attorney's Office for the District of Utah.
For his work at the U.S. Attorney's Office, he was given the Director's Award for Superior Performance from the Executive Office of the United States Attorneys in Washington, D.C., in 2007.
Gilmore has also served as a legal instructor for the Peace Officer Standards and Training Academy and the Utah Correctional Officer Academy for the Utah Department of Public Safety.
Gilmore graduated from the University of Utah's S.J. Quinney College of Law in 2003 after receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree from BYU.
