Ready to begin campaigning for another term, Republican District Judge Skipper Koetter formally announced he will seek re-election to his current position. A native Texan, Koetter has served as district judge of the 267th Judicial District, which covers Calhoun, DeWitt, Goliad, Jackson, Refugio, and Victoria counties since 2002.
Koetter holds a bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M University, and earned his law degree from South Texas College of Law in Houston. Before becoming an attorney, he helped run a small construction business for 10 years. Koetter also served in the Texas Air National Guard for eight years, and was honorably discharged in 1972 with the rank of sergeant.
He practiced law in Victoria for nearly 20 years, and tried approximately 100 cases to juries that covered a wide variety of legal matters. Koetter appeared in court representing both plaintiffs and defendants, and mediated over 800 legal disputes as a practicing mediator. As district judge, many serious criminal cases have been tried before Koetter (such as the Twilight Rapist case), and he has also heard numerous complex civil and family law matters.
