Michael Owens Craig, known as Mike Craig, (born November 1968)[1] is the Division A judge of the 26th Judicial District Court of Bossier and Webster parishes in northwestern Louisiana. He resides in Bossier City.

Craig received his undergraduate degree from Louisiana State University in Shreveport and his law degree from the historically black Southern University Law Center in Baton Rouge. Prior to his judgeship, Craig engaged in the private practice of law, worked with the Indigent Defender Board, and served from 2005 to 2008 as an assistant district attorney under DA Schuyler Marvin. He is a past president of the Bossier Parish Bar Association and a member of the state and Shreveport bar associations.[2] Marvin donated $1,000 to Craig’s campaign and attended a fundraising event. Employees of the DA were active in in Craig's campaign. Former Judge Bruce M. Bolin, now the court hearing officer, expressed disappointment at Marvin's involvement in the Craig-Burchett race. Marvin had criticized various sentences handed down by Judge Burchett.[3]

After a heated campaign, Craig, a Republican, on October 4, 2008, narrowly unseated 20-year Democrat Judge Dewey Eldridge Burchett, Jr. (1939-2009), of Benton, the seat of government of Bossier Parish.[4] Craig polled 12,182 votes (51 percent) to Burchett's 11,673 (49 percent).[5] Burchett served on the court from 1989 to 2009.

Craig is unopposed for reelection in the nonpartisan blanket primary scheduled for November 4, 2014. His court colleagues include two retiring judges, Ford E. Stinson, Jr., and John M. Robinson, as well as Mike Nerren, Parker Self, and Jeff Cox, all three of whom are also unopposed in the upcoming primary election.[6]
