ORLANDO, Fla. - Monique Worrell (D) has won the race for State Attorney - 9th Judicial Circuit, replacing Aramis Ayala as the state attorney serving Orange and Osceola counties.
Worrell of Winter Garden earned a bachelor's degree from St. John's University in 1995 and a J.D. from the University of Florida, Fredric G. Levin College of Law, in 2000.

"I have fought for justice in this community for over twenty years. I did not prepare my life around a run for state attorney, however, my life has prepared me well," her website states. "I bring a holistic perspective on justice from experience as a defense attorney, law professor, assistant state attorney, and chief legal officer. My background provides me with the unique ability to embrace differing perspectives and implement policies that will make our communities stronger and safer, without compromising justice."
