Fifth Judicial District - Clear Creek County Court Judge
Honorable Robert H. Wheeler
Retention Year: 1994
Robert H. Wheeler graduated from Colorado College in 1974 with a degree in literature, and obtained his law degree from the University of Colorado in 1982. His experience includes a year working as a judicial clerk, a year as a deputy district attorney in the Fourth Judicial District, and approximately a year in private practice. From 1984 – 1992 he served as Chief Deputy District Attorney in the Fifth Judicial District. He was appointed to the County Court Bench in April 1992.
Judge Wheeler’s county court docket is a mixture of civil and criminal matters, with traffic cases comprising 60% of the workload.
Evaluations by attorneys, courthouse personnel, and law enforcement employees were very storn for a new judge, with high ranking in every category.
Judge Wheeler expressed healthy concerns about improving the administration of justice. He appears to be making a conscientious effort to grow as he gains experience on the bench.
