FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - There is a new Superior Court judge in Allen County.
Judge Andrea Trevino was sworn in by the chief justice of the Indiana Supreme Court Tuesday afternoon.
Trevino was appointed last week by Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb to fill the remainder of the term of Judge Dan Heath, who retired last month.
Trevino said she's excited for her new role.
"We're really looking to expand services. I think in this day and age it's becoming really crucial to look for alternatives for juveniles to keep them out of detention centers," said Trevino.
She starts presiding over cases Wednesday.
Her term runs through 2020.
