Citron's Prosecutor Appointed as Judge

July 02, 1998|JOHN CANALIS

The man who prosecuted key cases resulting from the Orange County bankruptcy will soon become a judge.

Matthew Anderson, a senior deputy district attorney for Orange County, was appointed by Gov. Pete Wilson last month to the bench in Orange County Municipal Court in Fullerton. His term begins July 13. His assignment, whether civil or criminal, has not been determined.

Anderson, 40, succeeds Judge Stephen J. Sundvold, who won an elected seat on Orange County Superior Court. The term ends in 2000, and he can seek reelection.

Before becoming a deputy district attorney in Orange County in 1988, Anderson served as a public defender in Los Angeles and worked in private practice.

After the bankruptcy, he prosecuted former county Treasurer-Tax Collector Robert L. Citron and former Assistant Treasurer Matthew R. Raabe. Since then, he has handled special projects, including police officer-involved shootings and political corruption cases.
