HARTFORD, Conn.—The age of one of the governor's nominees for Superior Court judge is raising some eyebrows in Connecticut's legal community.

The nominee, Raheem Mullins of Cromwell, is a prosecutor in the chief state's attorney's office. At 33, he is the second-youngest person ever to be nominated for a state judgeship.

Connecticut is one of many states that don't have minimum age requirements for judges.

Waterbury attorney Leonard Crone is president of the Connecticut Criminal Defense Lawyers Association. He says when Malloy announced his six judge nominees this month, there was much discussion in legal circles about Mullins' age.

Mullins hasn't returned messages seeking comment.
