San Angelo city council members honored longtime San Angelo municipal court judge Allen Gilbert during Tuesday’s meeting. Judge Gilbert has served the city for over forty years and is retiring. Mayor Brenda Gunter took a moment to talk about the importance of Gilbert’s career to the community.

“Judge Gilbert has such a great reputation across the state of Texas,” said Gunter. “When someone has made such an impact on a statewide basis, you know the impact on the local basis is really huge; and he set a standard for creating new programs and new ideas.”

Gilbert himself, reflecting on his career, commented on some of his favored parts of the work. “To work with the new laws and some of the new laws that the legislature has adopted,” said Gilbert. “To make those changes. I had the opportunity to work with the texas judicial council.”

Some of his programs were aimed at rehabilitating juveniles and other offenders in a way that included less jail time. Judge Gilbert says he will still be an active member of the community, and will in fact be in charge of a local company for the forseeable future.
