Boone County judge announces retirement

Associate Circuit Judge Deborah Daniels announced on Thursday that her last day on the bench will be Feb. 28.

Daniels was first elected to the office in 2006 and was re-elected in 2010 and 2014. She has overseen the probate division, general civil and criminal dockets.

Throughout her time in Boone County, Daniels was instrumental in establishing a video hearing system for involuntary civil commitment hearings which prevents the need for transport of the mental health patients by law enforcement.

Daniels also created a domestic violence docket to ensure those cases were set more quickly.

“It has been my great honor to serve on the bench. My life’s passion has been the law and the service to the community that the law provides. I will miss the opportunity to serve as a judge and the privilege of working with the other judges, lawyers, court personnel and citizens.”
