MADISON – Gov. Tony Evers announced today his appointment of Beau Liegeois to the Brown County Circuit Court. The appointment fills a vacancy created by the retirement of Judge William Atkinson.
“Beau Liegeois is committed to public service and has a strong legal background, having served as a prosecutor in Brown County and as a JAG officer in the Wisconsin Army National Guard,” Gov. Evers said. “I am confident that this experience and his temperament will make him an excellent judge.”
Liegeois is a lifelong resident of Brown County. He has been an assistant district attorney with Brown County for 11 years, where he has prosecuted cases ranging from complex property crimes to homicide and sexual assault. He has also been a leader in growing Brown County’s treatment court programs. For eight years, Liegeois was a citizen-soldier in the Wisconsin Army National Guard, where he served as a legal officer in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps.
Liegeois is a graduate of Green Bay Southwest High School, UW-Madison, and Valparaiso University Law School.
