Unnamed District Judge
Ever Present in Yoknapatawpha?: 

There is a judge named Maycox mentioned in Intruder in the Dust, but Maycox lives in Jefferson. This unnamed judge, whom Gavin Stevens tells Lucas is the one who will preside over his murder trial, doesn't "live within fifty miles of Yoknapatawpha" (63). Presumably like the District Attorney who Gavin says will prosecute the case, this judge works out of the larger Mississippi town or city that the novel calls Harrisburg, and travels to smaller places like Jefferson for regular court sessions.
