January 09, 2009

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Angela Rosenberry Krom is expected to announce her candidacy at noon Monday for Judge of the 39th District of the Court of Common Pleas at the American Legion in McConnellsburg, Pa., and at 5 p.m. at the Franklin Fire Hall in Chambersburg.

The campaign also will include a "kickoff" event Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the Waynesboro Ambulance Squad Building.

Krom is a prosecutor with the Franklin County District Attorney's Office, where she has been employed full time since 1996. In the 12 years she has spent with the district attorney's office, she has prosecuted all types of cases, from routine misdemeanor to violent felony and criminal homicide cases. Krom's career highlights include serving as the county's first dedicated juvenile prosecutor; as the first STOP Violence Against Women Act prosecutor, handling domestic violence and sexual assault cases; and as the county's first full-time First Assistant District Attorney.

Krom has argued cases on behalf of the Commonwealth before Pennsylvania's Superior and Supreme Courts. In 2002, she received special recognition from the Pennsylvania District Attorney's Association for her role in the prosecution of a high-profile murder case.

Krom's announcement brings the number of people running for two seats on the bench to three. County Solicitor Shawn Meyers and Assistant District Attorney Tim Wilmot previously announced their candidacies.

One person will be elected to fill the vacancy left by the retirement of Judge John R. Walker and another will fill a newly created fifth judge position.
