OKLAHOMA CITY – Governor Mary Fallin today announced she has selected Tom Lee to serve as district attorney for the Ninth Judicial District in Logan and Payne counties.
Lee has served as first assistant district attorney in the Ninth District and will replace Robert Hudson, who resigned the district attorney’s office to take a position in the Oklahoma Attorney General’s office.
“Tom Lee is an experienced and tough prosecutor. He brings with him to the office a unique perspective based on his law enforcement career,” Fallin said. “I know he will serve Logan and Payne counties well as district attorney.”
Lee served as a police officer for the Stillwater Police Department and as an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper before joining the district attorney’s office for Logan and Payne counties. In 2010, he was named Oklahoma’s Outstanding Assistant District Attorney by the Oklahoma District Attorney’s Association.
He has a bachelor’s degree from Northwestern State University and a law degree from Oklahoma City University. Lee served as a paratrooper in the 101st Airborne Division during the Vietnam War.
He and his wife Vicki reside in Yale and have two adult children.
