An N.C. State University professor of business law and corporate finance will become a district court judge in Wake County.

Gov. Pat McCrory announced Monday that he has appointed Charles Gilliam to the bench.

Gilliam is a faculty member in the NCSU School of Management. He assists small business owners and nonprofit groups on a pro-bono basis, the governor’s statement says. He is a former assistant general counsel for Xerox Corp.

Gilliam ran unsuccessfully for the district court seat held by Judge Anna Elena Worley in 2012.

He and his wife live in Raleigh, and they have two children.

District court judges handle lawsuits, family matters, involuntary commitments of the mentally ill, and mostly misdemeanor criminal charges.
