January 5, 2020
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The longest serving judge on the Kansas Court of Appeals announced on Monday that he will retire on April 3.
Judge G. Joseph Pierron Jr., 72, has written 392 published opinions and heard thousands of appeals since he joined the state's second highest court in December 1990, the Office of Judicial Administration said in a news release.
"A lot of cases are routine. Criminal cases might not be exciting, but they're important to the people involved," Pierron said. "You try to do your best on every case, and some are terrifically complex."
