She was appointed to the court in 2010 by then Oklahoma Supreme Court Chief Justice James Edmondson after then Governor Brad Henry recused from the process because of a potential conflict of interest involving one of the applicants.

Smith filled an unexpired term on the bench and was retained for a six-year term in 2012 with 66 percent of the vote.

The appeals court is the highest court in the state with exclusive appellate jurisdiction in criminal cases.
