DENVER - Governor Bill Owens has appointed Anne Mansfield of Denver to the Denver District Court. This vacancy was created by the retirement of the Honorable John W. Coughlin.
"Anne Mansfield will be a welcome addition to the Denver District Court," said Governor Owens.

Her hard work, dedication and thoroughness have earned her the respect of judges, peers and others in the community."
Mansfield is presently a magistrate in the Adams County Combined Court. She also served as magistrate in the City and County of Denver from 2001 through 2004, and Deputy District Attorney in the 18th Judicial District from 1977 to 1983. Her docket includes protection orders, small claims trials and juvenile truancy matters. Her prior experience includes criminal prosecution and domestic relations. She earned her undergraduate degree from Colorado College and law degree from the University of Arizona.
