Kirkpatrick is Seeking A Full Term as a Judge

Oklahoma County District Judge Nikki Kirkpatrick, who was appointed by the governor to complete an unexpired term, said earlier this week she will seek a full four-year term.

Judge holds the Office 13 position on the bench for District 7.

Since her appointment by Gov. Kevin Stitt, Judge Kirkpatrick said she has striven to “rigorously protect the rule of law and the rights of citizens.”

The judge said that her previous service with the Offices of the Oklahoma Attorney General and the Oklahoma County District Attorney helped “strengthen my commitment to defend others and to be a voice for the voiceless.”

A native of Oklahoma County, Judge Kirkpatrick said her serving as a district judge has been “a true honor.”

She pointed out that her working as a prosecutor with the Oklahoma County District Attorney’s Office, “I was fortunate to work towards safer and healthier outcomes for both victims and defendants.”

Before she was appointed a district judge, she served in the Consumer Protection Unit of the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office.

There, she assisted “the most vulnerable citizens of the state through scams and unscrupulous fraudsters, helping to recover hundreds of thousands of dollars in restitution for victims of financial crimes,” she noted.

“As your current district judge, I am dedicated to helping others and serving justice,” Judge Kirkpatrick went on.

“I will continue to protect the rights of all parties, and I will continue to have the perspective and compassion to care for all of Oklahoma County’s citizens seeking justice in the courtroom.”

The Oklahoma County district judge graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor of arts degree in political science from the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond and received a juris doctorate degree from the School of Law of Oklahoma City University.

She and her husband, Ryan Kirkpatrick, have two children.
