VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - An Adel Attorney has been sworn in as the new Superior Court Judge in the Alapaha Judicial Circuit.

Howard McClain was sworn into office Thursday by Governor Sonny Perdue at the House chambers in Atlanta.

McClain will fill the position left vacant by former Clinch County judge Brooks Blitch, who resigned in May to avoid prosecution by the Judicial Qualification Commission.

McClain will now serve as Superior Court Judge until the election in 2010.
