The city of Easley in South Carolina has a legal superstar in the making with the recent swearing in to the judge’s bench for Jasmine Twitty. According to reports, Twitty, 25, is the youngest judge ever appointed in the city and the state.

A report from For Harriet had the most detailed information about Twitty’s judgeship for the South Carolina Municipal Court. The event, which  took place last week, did not garner much in the way of media attention despite the nature of the news. However, fame might not be a main goal for Judge Twitty at this stage of her career.

The College of Charleston graduate is also a treasurer for the Urban League of the Upstate. She’s also a member of the Upstate Network Young Professionals board and has gained a reputation of assisting other young workers in their career ascension.

Not surprisingly, detractors online began attempts to discredit and disprove Twitty’s achievement. While it is true the College of Charleston does not have a law school,  a quick look at the municipal judge roster list for South Carolina shows Twitty’s name appearing clear as day as an associate judge.

Easley, a mostly-white town of around 18,000 in the upper northwest part of the state, is the birthplace of New England Patriot star wide receiver Stanley Morgan.
