Vogt seeking court seat.

Byline: The Register-Guard

Deputy Lane County District Attorney Debra Vogt is a candidate for the Circuit Court seat being vacated by the retirement of Judge Bryan Hodges in 2007.

Vogt, 37, has been a local prosecutor for 10 years. For two years before that, she was a law clerk for Circuit Judge Maurice Merten. She graduated from the Willamette University School of Law in 1994.

She prosecuted the case of Robert Earl Smith, the Eugene man who was sentenced to 53 years in prison in 2004 for producing child pornography and distributing it over the Internet. She also prosecuted Len John Allen, a repeat offender and serial rapist who was sentenced in 2000 to 100 years in prison.

Vogt was one of two prosecutors in the 2001 murder case involving Barbara Hardegger - whose husband, Gary Joseph Hardegger, and son, Brian Joseph Hardegger, are serving life prison terms for burying her alive.

She will formally announce her candidacy today in a noon news conference outside the district attorney's office.
