Circuit Judge, 18th Circuit Court, Viera, Florida Elected November 2006 – present.
Currently serving as the Administrative Judge of the Brevard County Criminal Felony Division. Within the first five months of being assigned to the felony criminal division, Judge Crawford resolved all cases assigned to him where inmates had been in Brevard County Jail more than two years, ending unnecessary delays and reducing the jail population.
Previous judicial experience includes all family law matters, juvenile dependency and delinquency, civil litigation, and domestic violence. Since beginning his judicial career, Judge Crawford has spearheaded several innovative programs. While in the dependency division, Judge Crawford instituted a Special Needs Docket for children in foster care with mental or physical disabilities, allowing their cases to be reviewed twice as often as previously set. Along with Brevard Family Partnership, he implemented the county’s only supervised visitation program for parents seeking to reunite with their children while involved in a reunification case plan. With the help of his courtroom deputies and countless volunteers, Judge Crawford maintained a courthouse playroom and a children’s clothing and toy/bicycle room making sure every child that came to court left with much needed items and toys.
