BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Governor Ron DeSantis announced the appointment of Judge Stephen Everett to the Second Circuit Court.

“I’m impressed with Judge Everett’s judicial philosophy as he understands the role of a judge is in restraint,” said Governor DeSantis.

“He recognizes the proper role of the courts and respects the legislature’s distinct role to make general law. He will bring a strong work ethic and humility to his new role as Circuit Judge.”

Everett, 38, of North Carolina, has served as a Judge of Leon County since April 2016. He received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida and his law degree from Louisiana State University.

Prior to joining the bench, Judge Everett served as both an Assistant State Attorney and Assistant State Public Defender. Previously he served in the General Counsel’s office of the Department of Economic Opportunity.

Everett fills the vacancy created by the resignation of Judge Karen Gievers.

The Second Circuit covers Franklin County, Gadsden County, Jefferson County, Leon County, Liberty County and Wakulla County.
