Herk. Co. Family Court Judge Brennan sworn in, replaces longtime Judge Laraia

HERKIMER, N.Y. (WKTV) - After 26 years, Herkimer County has a new family court judge to start off the 2011 new year.

Republican John Brennan was sworn-in Saturday at the Herkimer County Office and Court facility on North Washington Street where he will now serve as the judge.

Brennan won the seat in November over Democrat Mary Iacovazzi. Judge Brennan, who lives in Little Falls, served as a law clerk for three state supreme court judges and now will sit in the judges chair himself.

Brennan fills the spot left open by retiring Judge Herny Laraia who was first elected in 1984.
