MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A new judge is being appointed to take over the case load for Judge Patricia Warner, who has left her job unexpectedly with no reason being given to the media.

Montgomery County Presiding Circuit Judge Charles Price has now appointed Juvenile Court Referee Bob Bailey as a Special Circuit Court Judge in the Family Court Division of the 15th Judicial Circuit, Montgomery County.

Judge Bailey will assume the duties of the newly retired Warner, effective immediately and serve in the interim until such time as a new judge is appointed by Governor Bentley.

Judge Bailey has worked in Family Court over thirty years and has been a full time Juvenile Court Referee for 23 years.

Warner was just elected to this post in November.
