HELENA, Mont. -

Gov. Steve Bullock has appointed Rosebud County Attorney Michael Hayworth as judge for the 16th Judicial District, which covers seven counties in eastern Montana.
    
Hayworth has been the county attorney since 2000 and received his Juris Doctor from Valparaiso University School of Law in Indiana in 1995. He graduated from Colstrip High School and Miles Community College.
    
Hayworth was appointed Wednesday to fill the post vacated by the February death of District Judge Gary Day of Miles City.
    
The judgeship will be on the 2014 ballot and the successful candidate will serve the remainder of Day's term, which expires in January 2019.
