Award presented to Osage County judge for service to crime victims

WICHITA – Osage County Magistrate Judge Taylor J. Wine was recognized for his service to crime victims April 3 during the 16th Annual Crime Victims’ Rights Conference, in Wichita.

Wine was presented the Criminal Justice Award by Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt during an awards ceremony at the two-day conference. Wine was nominated for the award by Missy Shelton, director of SOS Crisis Services.

“Judge Wine has been very responsive to the needs of victims in the 4th district court,” Shelton said in her nomination. “SOS has had the opportunity to collaborate effectively with Judge Wine, discussing trends and issues, lethality concerns and reducing trauma.”

The Kansas Crime Victims’ Rights Conference was hosted by Attorney General Schmidt and Gov. Sam Brownback. The conference featured speakers and trainers focused on raising awareness of emerging crimes and offering new approaches to respond to enduring crimes, such as child abuse, domestic violence and human trafficking.

Wine serves as 4th Judicial District magistrate judge for Osage and Coffey counties.
