LANSING – Gov. Rick Snyder today announced that he will appoint Robert Springstead to the 27th Circuit Court, covering Newaygo and Oceana counties.

Springstead replaces Judge Anthony Monton who has held the position since 1989.

“As the Newaygo County Prosecutor, Robert Springstead earned a reputation as being a fair, knowledgeable and hard-working attorney” Snyder said. “I am confident he will continue to provide excellent public service in his new position.”

Springstead, of White Cloud, has served as the prosecuting attorney in Newaygo County since 2010. From 2006 to 2010, he was in private practice as a partner at Springstead Law Offices where he served as defense counsel in misdemeanor and felony cases. He also represented clients in domestic relations matters, real estate, and civil litigation. He began his career in 1995 as an associate at Springstead & Bostic, PC, in Hart.

Springstead is a member of the State Bar of Michigan, the Newaygo County Bar Association, the Oceana County Bar Association, the Criminal Defense Attorneys of Michigan and the Prosecuting Attorneys Association of Michigan. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Kalamazoo College in 1990 and his law degree from Detroit College of Law in 1993. He will fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Judge Anthony Monton.

Springstead must seek election in November 2018 for a full six-year term.

An retirement open house honoring Judge Monton will be held Friday, Feb. 24 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the circuit courtroom at the Oceana County Building with a presentation at 3 p.m.
