Annapolis, MD -- State's Attorney Wes Adams announced today that Pamela K. Alban, formerly the Chief of the Special Victims' Unit in the Office of the State's Attorney, was appointed by Governor Hogan to serve as a judge for the Anne Arundel County Circuit Court.
"She has dedicated her entire career to serving the citizens of this county," said State's Attorney Wes Adams. "While we will certainly miss having her among our office's leadership, I look forward to witnessing the good work Judge Designee Alban will accomplish from the bench."
Judge Designee Alban completed her law degree at the Georgetown University Law Center, and has served as a prosecutor in the Anne Arundel County Office of the State's Attorney since 1995.
In recognition of her legal acumen and leadership abilities, State's Attorney Wes Adams promoted Judge Designee Alban to Chief of the Special Victims Unit in 2016. In addition to training prosecutors and setting standards within her unit, she remained an ardent advocate for victims.
A recent highlight that is emblematic of Judge Designee Alban's distinguished career as a prosecutor includes a week long jury trial before Judge Vitale in April, 2018. The jury found the defendant, Travis Foster, guilty of sex abuse of a minor, second degree sex offense, and third degree sex offense.
Foster was sentenced to 35 years of active incarceration and 5 years of supervised probation upon release. He is required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
Judge Designee Alban will be sworn in as an Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge later this month.
