POMEROY — I. Carson Crow recently took his place on the bench of the Meigs County Common Pleas Court.
Crow replaces Christopher Tenoglia who was appointed to the position last January.
Crow is the third member of his family to serve as the Meigs County Common Pleas Court Judge. His grandfather and brother previously served in the position.
In taking over as judge, Crow said his goals are to “call them like you see them,” as his dad said. He also stated his goals are to be fair and polite.
The Meigs County attorney began practicing law in 1975 after graduating from Ohio Northern Law School and Ohio University where he was a member of the football team. He also served as Meigs County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney for 12 years. He has been admitted to practice in all Ohio Courts, the Federal District Court, and since 1997, the Supreme Court of the United States. Crow is a member of the Meigs County and Ohio State Bar Associations.
The Crow and Crow Law Firm was established in 1907 by Crow’s grandfather, Fred W. Crow, with his father, Fred W. Crow, Jr., also practicing at the law firm beginning in 1946. He has coached middle school football for more than 30 years.
Crow and his wife, Barbara, are parents to Crockett and Morgan.
Crow was elected to the position after defeating Tenoglia in the March 2012 primary election. He was unopposed in the Nov. 2012 general election.
