(Bossier City, La.) – With the announcement of the resignation of Judge Charles Jacobs
from the 26th Judicial District Court, a Bossier Parish prosecutor has indicated her
intentions to run for the seat.
Assistant District Attorney Allie Aiello Stahl, who prosecutes felony and misdemeanor
criminal cases in the two-parish district of Bossier and Webster Parishes, said she will
be a candidate for judge to fill the vacancy.
“Because this election will likely occur in March 2022, I will have a formal campaign
launch after this year’s fall elections. However, I have been encouraged by friends,
colleagues, and supporters to publicly share my intentions.
“As a candidate for judge, I will present my qualifications, my successful criminal
prosecutorial experience working for District Attorney Schuyler Marvin, and a deep
respect for our Constitution and the rule of law.
“I firmly believe that a judge’s role in our courts is to interpret the law fairly as the law is
written, and not necessarily how one thinks the law should be. The role of our courts is
to be fair, impartial, and absent any activist leaning or intent. If I am honored to serve
my fellow citizens as their next district court judge, I will faithfully honor this role.
“I look forward to sharing our complete campaign launch this fall,” said Stahl.
The election to fill the forthcoming judicial vacancy is expected to occur in March 2022.
