Criminal Appeals: Minor, Cole win, McCool and Anderson head to runoff

A prosecutor and a judge have won two Republican primaries for judgeships on the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals. A third race is headed to a runoff for a space on the court.

St. Clair County District Attorney Richard Minor has won the Place 1 judgeship on the court. He defeated Riggs Walker, an assistant district attorney in Jefferson County.

The primary for Place 2 on the appellate court is headed to a July runoff between west Alabama District Attorney Chris McCool and Assistant Alabama Attorney General Rich Anderson.

Jefferson County Circuit Judge Bill Cole won the primary for the Place 3 seat on the court. He defeated Shelby County attorney Donna Beaulieu.

Winning the GOP primary is tantamount to election in all three races since no Democrats qualified.
