WARREN COUNTY: Duvelius First to File for Judge Position

Warren County Juvenile and Probate Court Chief Magistrate Carolyn Duvelius filed her petitions to run for the Common Pleas Court Judge seat currently held by Judge Neal Bronson. Judge Bronson has indicated that he does not plan on seeking re-election. Duvelius will be running in the Republican Primary scheduled for March 6, 2012.

Duvelius has served as a Magistrate for the past 8 years hearing over 11,000 cases and helping administer the Court. As Chief Magistrate, Duvelius handles a wide variety of criminal and civil matters including probate litigation and the highest level of felony offenses. Prior to serving as Magistrate, Duvelius served 15 years as an Assistant Warren County Prosecutor, personally handling over 50,000 cases ranging from sex offenses to traffic matters. Her husband, Mark, has worked in Law Enforcement for over 30 years, as a Sheriff’s Deputy and an investigator for the Warren County Prosecutor’s Office. He also has served as both a paid and volunteer firefighter/paramedic.

“This is a great opportunity to continue my career goal of serving and protecting the people of Warren County,” Duvelius stated. “Warren County needs judges that are conservative and just,” Duvelius noted. “My whole career I have been both.” “I have dedicated my career to keeping criminals off of our streets and protecting the people of this County and I will continue to do so as Judge.”

Magistrate Duvelius is an active member of the Warren County Community. She is the mother of two Lebanon teenagers, Tyler and Matthew; a parishioner at St. Francis De Sales church in Lebanon, a Board member for the Warren County Big Brother and Big Sisters organization and a member of the Warren County Republican Women.
