Governor Phil Bredesen on Wednesday appointed Criminal Court Judge J.C. McLin of Memphis to the state Court of Criminal Appeals. Judge McLin's elevation fills a vgacy created by the retirement of Judge Joe Riley, who assumed a role as chief disciplinary counsel for the Court of the Judiciary on July 15.. The 57-year-old McLin, a native of Gibson County, was elected to the Criminal Court bench in a special election in 2000. He had previously been an assistant District Attorney and had pursued a private practice in criminal law. He is a graduate of Lane College of Jackson and holds a master's degree from the University of Tennessee at Martin, as well as a doctor of jurisprudence degree from UT-Knoxville.
