Judge Warren Wilbert is a 1976 graduate of Washburn University’s School of Law (Topeka, KS). Washburn is one of two law schools in the state, the other is at University of Kansas.
Judge Wilbert is an active Roman Catholic: he’s served as a deacon and worked in his parish’s eucharist for the homebound program. He was appointed to the bench in 1995 and won re-election to a fifth term last November. He rotates between the 18th district’s civil and criminal divisions. His re-election bid was endorsed by Kansans for Life.
The most interesting thing about Wilbert is that he was reprimanded in 2006 for a sexual harassment complaint filed by a court employee. This is an oddball case. The judge was not only reprimanded, the cease-and-desist order was made public. There was no finding of sexual harassment. I haven’t been able to track down the order to see its actual text.
