A packed courtroom observed the formal swearing-in of Amber Redford Sowers as the Northeastern Judicial Circuit’s newest Juvenile Court Judge on September 6, 2022. Mrs. Sowers’ selection by the Superior Court judges was previously announced following an open application period and candidate interviews. In January 2023, Judge Sowers will assume the permanent position currently occupied by Juvenile Judge Lindsay H. Burton. Until then, and with the approval of Hall County officials, Judge Sowers will begin immediately assisting the court as an Associate Juvenile Judge and benefit from an overlap with Judge Burton, who was elected in May to an open Superior Court seat in 2023.
