The next leader of the county’s juvenile court already has represented teens and children who have broken the law, worked with struggling families and helped with adoptions of foster children.
Andy Roesener will take over leadership of the county’s juvenile and family court starting Jan. 1. The current magistrate, Marla Clark, won the Republican nomination to become judge of the new Superior Court 4. No one currently is running against her, but candidates can still file until noon Tuesday.
Roesener, 47, has worked as both a prosecutor and defense attorney, which has given him well-rounded experience, said Judge Mark Loyd, who is appointing him to oversee the county’s juvenile court.
