He also worked as a prosecutor for Salt Lake City as well as the contracted city attorney for Monticello City.
“I express my sincere gratitude to Gov. Cox for his trust in me to further serve the families and people of Utah, and to do so in the same communities in which I was raised,” Goble said. “I am humbled to be appointed as a Sixth District Juvenile Court judge, and if confirmed, I will serve through fair, respectful, and impartial application of the law.”
