Deschutes County Circuit Court Judge Michael Sullivan retires after almost 25 years on the bench.

 

Sullivan says in those 25 years, he's very proud that he helped improve the court system.  "So things that I'm particularly please about are: 2 new courtroom that we got several years ago. The security at the front desk that the sheriff provides; in addition to that, I’m very please about our Family Court, our Family Drug Court, our Mental Health Court; our Deferred Sentencing Domestic Relations Violence Court. So all of those programs are not only more efficient, but they bring about better results."

 

Sullivan says he's seen a lot of changes in how the judicial system works, especially with electronic technology, allowing them to cut costs.

 

While in retirement, Sullivan could be called in to work as a replacement judge from time to time, but he's looking forward to some special time with his grand kids.
