6th District Juvenile Court to get new judge

Published on November 10, 2017 at 11:11AM

There will be a new face on the bench for the Sixth District Juvenile Court in 2018. Judge Paul Lyman, who has been serving since 2000, will be retiring, effective December 31. Five names will be submitted to Governor Herbert after the written comment period ends on Monday, November 13, and the Governor will have 30 days to select a new judge. That name will have to be ratified by the Utah Legislature during the 2018 session. Comments may be made until noon on Monday and can be emailed to judicialvacancies@utah.gov.

Those on the list include Sanpete County Attorney Brody Keisel; Mark McIff, who serves as a justice court judge in several Sanpete Counties; Sevier County Attorney Dale Eyre; Mandy Larsen, a deputy county attorney in Sevier County; and Todd Sessions, an attorney from Davis County who is a frequent defense attorney in juvenile court.
