My family and I are life-long residents of York County. I grew up in Spry, York Twp. and graduated from the Christian School of York. I have lived in East Manchester Twp. for over 25 years with my wife, a Mt. Wolf native, and our two daughters. We are members of Living Word Community Church and have been active with various groups and organizations within the community. I am a graduate of Penn State University, the Pennsylvania Municipal Police Officer's Academy and the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General Agent's Academy.
I have dedicated over 27 years to serving the citizens of
this Commonwealth as a law enforcement officer and since as a Magisterial District Judge. I have worked as a police officer,
detective, member of the York County Drug Task Force and Hostage Negotiator in
York County with the Northern York County Regional Police Department before spending the last 10 years of my law enforcement career as a Special Agent with the
Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General where I have helped fight fraud, crimes
against the elderly, drug offenses and corrupt organizations. I have worked closely with local and State prosecutors, as well as local,
State and Federal law enforcement officials, private defense attorneys and public defenders. I have been fortunate to have had a wide range of experience with everything from traffic law and civil disputes to
criminal homicide investigations and major white collar crimes.
I was fortunate enough to win in both primaries and ran unopposed in the 2013 general election with much help and support from family, friends and the citizens of District 19-3-11. I completed training mandated under Title 42 of Pennsylvania Statutes and the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s Rules of Criminal Procedure and was certified in 2013 by the Minor Judiciary Education Board to hold the Office of Magisterial District Judge. I am currently the Secretary of the Pennsylvania 19th Judicial District Magisterial District Judge's Association and have been a member of the Judiciary Committee of the Special Court Judge's Association of Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvania has a
Unified Judicial System. According to the Pennsylvania Constitution, All courts shall be open; and
every man for an injury done him in his lands, goods, person or reputation
shall have remedy by due course of law, without sale, denial or delay. Fortunately, York County district
courts have a great reputation throughout the state and the creation of District Court 19-3-11 through redistricting has
alleviated heavy case loads, cut waste and delay. District Court 19-3-11 has a talented staff to assist you.
I honored to continue serving to the Citizens of the Commonwealth and District 19-3-11 and hope the people I serve will leave my courtroom knowing that they were treated with fairness and respect.
