Mitch Templeton sworn in as Jefferson County 172nd District Court judge


    Judge Mitch Templeton is officially sworn in as Jefferson County's District Court Judge, and he already has his eyes set on the future.

    Templeton tells KFDM that because of the amount of civil cases down across the state, Jefferson County could try more criminal cases in the near future.

    Templeton says his concern is more of the justice side of the legal system, like citizens who wait a lengthy time to go to trial and he believes Jefferson county can help.
