Coconino Superior Court issued the following announcement on March 15.
The Coconino County Presiding Superior Court Judge Mark R. Moran has appointed Judge Ted S. Reed as the Presiding Juvenile Court Judge.
As Presiding Juvenile Court Judge, Reed will be responsible for the oversight of operations of the Juvenile Court, including Juvenile Detention, Juvenile Probation and Juvenile Programming.
“I am pleased to appoint such a qualified person to such an important position,” said Judge Moran. “Judge Reed’s involvement in the Juvenile Court over the last eight years and his dedication to the staff, kids and families in our Juvenile Justice System made him the top choice for Presiding Juvenile Court Judge.”
In 2011 Judge Reed was appointed as Judge Pro Tempore for the Superior Court, serving Division 6. His caseload included juvenile delinquency, family law and Recovery Court. In 2019, Judge Reed was elected to Division 1 of the Superior Court when Judge Hatch retired.
“I am honored to be selected as the Presiding Juvenile Court Judge and want to acknowledge the tremendous accomplishments of my predecessor and mentor, the Honorable Margaret McCullough,” said Judge Reed. “I look forward to building on the success of our Coconino County Juvenile Justice System and working with a professional and dedicated staff whose focus is on the well-being of the kids. It is truly humbling to receive this opportunity to lead the Juvenile Court in advancing the initiatives we currently are working on and developing further creative solutions to help our kids and families succeed.”
Prior to Judge Reed’s judicial service, he was in private practice in criminal defense and family law and served as a Deputy Coconino County Attorney from 2005-2008.
