Missey named as Children’s Division director

The Missouri Department of Social Services announced that Jefferson County Circuit Judge Darrell Missey has been named as director of the Children’s Division. 

Missey was elected associate circuit judge in Jefferson County in 2002 and was assigned the juvenile docket, which mostly involved foster care cases. He continued to handle juvenile cases involving foster children after he was elected to the circuit bench in 2014, until he became presiding judge and administrative judge of the circuit’s Family Court in 2016.

Missey has served for 15 years on the Supreme Court’s Family Court Committee and previously chaired Missouri’s Juvenile Detention Alternative Initiative Replication Team, served on the Children’s Services Commission, and was a member of the Juvenile Detention Standards Review Committee.
