AUGUSTA – Governor Paul R. LePage today announced the nomination of District Attorney Geoffrey Rushlau to the Maine District Court.

“As Governor, I have the utmost respect and have been impressed with the high quality work of the Judicial Branch. In choosing judges, my focus is on the qualifications, demeanor, and integrity of the candidates, not politics. All of my nominees reflect these priorities,” said Governor LePage. “I am confident that Mr. Rushlau will live up to the high standards we expect from Maine judges.”

Geoffrey Rushlau, a resident of Dresden, is one of Maine’s longest-serving prosecutors. He is currently serving his sixth consecutive term as district attorney for Prosecutorial District 6, which includes Sagadahoc, Lincoln, Knox and Waldo counties. Prior to that, he was the Assistant District Attorney for Districts 6 and 3 (Androscoggin, Oxford and Franklin counties).

Rushlau is a member of the Maine Prosecutors Association serving twice as President (1998-2000; 2006-2008). He is also a member of the National District Attorneys Association, Criminal Law Advisory Commission, Maine Criminal Justice Academy Board of Trustees and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency Advisory Board.

Rushlau is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law.
