Kindred named 454th District Court judge

Daniel Kindred.

Governor Greg Abbott appointed Daniel Kindred as judge of the 454th Judicial District Court on August 30.
The appointment went into effect on September 1, and expires on December 31, 2020, or until a successor is elected.
The 454th Judicial District was created for Medina County by the Texas Legislature earlier this year, and will handle Medina County’s felony and civil cases. Medina County was previously part of the 38th Judicial District, which now comprises just Uvalde and Real Counties.
All Medina County cases that were pending in the 38th District Court have been transferred to the 454th District Court.
Kindred was elected District Attorney for the 38th Judicial District in 2009, and served in that capacity until his appointment to the 454th District bench.
