DURANT, Okla. (AP) — Gov. Kevin Stitt has announced the appointment of a new district attorney for three counties in southern Oklahoma.

Tim Webster was appointed district attorney for District 19, which includes Atoka, Bryan and Coal counties. He fills the seat of Emily Redman, who retired on Oct. 1. Webster had been serving as acting attorney since Redman’s retirement.

Webster was previously appointed as associate district attorney for District 19 in 2003. Before that, he worked in private practice for more than two decades in Durant.

“Tim Webster has spent almost four decades serving the people of Atoka, Bryan and Coal counties,” Stitt said. “His experience as a litigator and prosecutor, as well as his heart for his community, makes him the best choice to serve as the next district attorney for District 19.”
