Stice announces candidacy for new District Judge post

NORMAN — Steve Stice, who serves as a Special District Judge for Cleveland County, has announced his candidacy for District Judge for Cleveland, McClain and Garvin Counties.

This judgeship is a newly created position for District 21.

Stice grew up in Norman with his parents, Col. William Howard Stice, (USAF), and Jimmie Lou Stice, a Norman Public School teacher for 31 years. He graduated from Norman High School in 1987.

He attended and earned his Juris Doctorate from the University of Oklahoma in 1996. Shortly thereafter Stice opened his own law practice. In addition, Stice was involved in small businesses including a commercial real estate partnership.

Over the next 14 years, Stice managed his law firm where he litigated hundreds of jury and non-jury criminal, civil, juvenile and administrative cases. He represented thousands of clients in courts throughout Oklahoma. He is licensed to practice in Oklahoma, the Western District of Oklahoma Federal Court, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court.

In 2010 the District Judges for the 21st Judicial District appointed Stice Special District Judge for Cleveland County. Stice is assigned one of the largest criminal, felony and misdemeanor, civil, and juvenile dockets in the district.

“I fully supported Steve’s appointment as Special Judge and I support him now. With 18 years of legal and judicial experience, he is uniquely qualified to be District Judge,” said Tom Lucas, District Judge, retired.

Stice is proud to preside over the Cleveland County Juvenile Drug Court. Stice partners with the District Attorney’s Office, Norman Police, school officials and treatment providers to help at-risk children and families in our community.

Stice uses his business experience in the administration of the courthouse. He has implemented policies to make court dockets run more efficiently. He works closely with Sheriff Joe Lester to help manage and control Cleveland County’s jail population.
