Brown Names Prosecutor to San Diego Superior Court
By a MetNews Staff Writer
Gov. Jerry Brown yesterday named San Diego Deputy District Attorney Kelly Chong Mok to the San Diego Superior Court.
Mok, 48, joined the District Attorney’s Office in 1994 and was named assistant chief of the North County Branch last year. She is a graduate of UC Irvine and Loyola Law School.
She will succeed Judge William C. Gentry Jr., a former deputy district attorney, when Gentry retires Feb. 9, the Governor’s Office said in a release. The timing of the retirement and appointment will take the office off this year’s ballot, on which Gentry would otherwise have been up for reelection.
Mok is a graduate of UC Irvine and Loyola Law School. She is a Democrat.
