New Chief Judge for 14th Circuit
Judges in Illinois' 14th Judicial Circuit have chosen a new leader. Friday they elected Frank Fuhr to be the new chief judge.
He replaces Walter Braud who stepped down earlier this week.
Fuhr will serve as chief judge through the end of next year, for the circuit which includes Henry, Mercer, Rock Island, and Whiteside counties.
He was first appointed to be an associate judge in 2008, and became a circuit judge two years later.
