Two new Juvenile Court judges were ceremonially sworn into office in Hall County last week.
Superior Court Judge Kathlene F. Gosselin administered the oath of office to Juvenile Court Judge Robert A. “Bo” Weber, and Superior Court Judge Jason Deal administered the oath to Juvenile Court Judge Alison Toller. In addition to Judges Gosselin and Deal, Chief Juvenile Court Judge Lindsay Burton and former Chief Juvenile Court Judge Cliff Jolliff offered comments at the ceremony, which occurred at 3 p.m. Friday at the Hall County Courthouse.
Both judges were officially sworn into office prior to Friday’s ceremony. Judge Weber’s official swearing in date was Nov. 1, 2014, while Judge Toller was officially sworn in on Dec. 1, 2014.
Weber and Toller both worked in private practice prior to being appointed to four year terms by the Superior Court Judges of the Northeastern Judicial Circuit, which includes Hall and Dawson counties. The appointments come following Judge Jolliff’s retirement at the end of 2014 and the addition of a third judge’s position for Hall County Juvenile Court.
