With eight years experience in Harrison County, R. Cristine Stallings of Bethany has been appointed to fill out the remainder of the Grundy county term vacated by Carol Wetherell.

According to the Governor's office, Stallings, a Democrat, has been in private practice at Bethany since 1992. She's been Bethany's city attorney and prosecutor since 2003. She's served two different periods as HARRISON County Prosecuting Attorney. Those were from 1995 to 1998 and from 2007 to 2010. Mrs. Stallings also was an assistant child support prosecutor for six counties from 2001 to 2004 – Grundy, Mercer, Harrison, and Putnam as well as Linn and Macon counties.

The governor reported Stallings received her bachelor's degree from University of Missouri at Kansas City and her law degree through the University of Missouri at Columbia.

Her term as Grundy County prosecutor concludes in December of 2014.

Ms. Wetherell, elected in 2010, resigned the position effective April 30th. Livingston County Prosecutor Adam Warren of Chillicothe, a Republican, served as interim prosecutor for Grundy County since the 1st of May. He reportedly was willing to fill the local position until such time as the Governor made an appointment.

Grundy county's office for the prosecuting attorney is the former sheriff's office downtown Trenton—across from the Courthouse.

Mrs. Stallings said she expects to be sworn in tomorrow (Friday) by Circuit Court Judge Jack Peace at the Grundy County Courthouse court room.

She told KTTN she plans to continue having a private law practice which now totals 21 years. And she intends to establish residency in order to be eligible to run for the office of Grundy County Prosecuting Attorney next year.

State law requires a candidate to have at least one year residency in the county where they seek elective office. The next general election is November of 2014.
