Gov. Ricketts Appoints Amy Schuchman to the Separate Juvenile Court of Douglas County

 

LINCOLN – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts appointed Amy Schuchman of Elkhorn to the Separate Juvenile Court of Douglas County.

 

Schuchman, 43, has served as Deputy County Attorney for Douglas County since 2004.  She has more than 12 years of experience on the Juvenile Division of the Douglas County Attorney’s Office.  Most recently, she served on the Child Victim/Sexual Assault Unit of the Attorney’s Office and acted as its Board of Mental Health Coverage attorney.

 

Schuchman holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of Missouri in Columbia and a Juris Doctor from Whittier Law School in Costa Mesa, California.  She is a member of the Nebraska Bar Association and Omaha Bar Association.  In addition, she has been a member of the Douglas County 1184 Investigative Team since September 2018.

 

Schuchman is also active in the community, volunteering with Teammates Mentorship Program, Junior Achievement, CASA for Douglas County, and CASA Sarpy County.

 

She fills the second of two vacancies created by the retirement of Judge Douglas F. Johnson and the resignation of Judge Elizabeth G. Crnkovich.  Earlier this month, Mary “Peg” Stevens of Elkhorn was appointed to fill the other vacancy.

 

The primary office location of this judgeship will be in Douglas County, Nebraska.
