me and liles
On 18 Jan. 2013, John Michael “Jay” Mastin was invested as District Court Judge in Marshall County, AL. Jay’s grandmother Joyce O’Brien sent a news article published in their church bulletin. Thank you for sharing this wonderful news, Joyce! This is a very proud moment in Johnson Family history. Judge Jay Mastin is the son of Michael Dennis “Mike” and Belinda Joyce “Lindy” Mastin, grandson of Seth Michael “Mickey” and Joyce Graham O’Brien and great-grandson of Joseph Nathaniel and Dorothy Dixson Johnson O’Brien (Uncle "Joe" and Aunt "Dot"). Congratulations and best wishes, Judge Jay! We know you will have a long and honorable tenure on the bench.

Update 22 May 2013! We now also have the news article, “Mastin named new district judge” with photo of Judge Jay [pictured here (left) with his “longtime legal mentor and friend” Court of Criminal Appeals Judge Liles Burke (right)].
