Leonard withdraws motions; Rogers to be next Family Court Judge

J-E News Editor
The race for Family Court Judge officially came to an end last Tuesday when Providence attorney Ben Leonard entered a plea for the withdrawl of motions that were currently active.

According to the motion, filed on Tuesday, December 9, 2014,  although Leonard “wants it specifically noted that he disagrees with the Court’s handling of this matter on a number of levels, he believes that the families and the public deserve finality in the foregoing situation and such finality cannot be achieved by proceeding with years of litigation.”
This brings an end to a race which began a year ago when candidates started campaigning for the May Primary and has lasted more than a month beyond the November 4, 2014 General Election.
The final vote tally from the election showed the candidates separated by only fifty votes in a race that included all of Crittenden, Union and Webster County voters. Although the Crittenden County recount showed no change in the end totals, the process was stopped with only two precincts in Webster and none in Union counted when a ballot box from Clay was found to be unlocked and unsecured.
Rogers will take the bench in January of 2014.
