Gov. Ron DeSantis appointed attorney Jonathan Sacks as a Duval County judge, the governor’s office announced Dec. 22.

Sacks, a former assistant state attorney in the 4th Judicial Circuit, succeeds Duval County Judge London Kite, who was appointed to the Circuit Court.

He was among 10 applicants interviewed Oct. 25 by the 4th Circuit Judicial Nominating Commission and one of six candidates presented to DeSantis.

Sacks received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Richmond and his J.D. from Florida State University and was admitted to The Florida Bar in 2002.

He applied for nomination twice previously, in 2012 and in April, and campaigned for Duval County judge in 2012, but withdrew before the election.

Sacks is board certified in criminal trial law by The Florida Bar.
