First Municipal Judges Sworn In

Mayor Jason Lary administered the oath of office yesterday to Stonecrest's first two municipal judges. Jonathan Weintraub was sworn in as the chief judge and Michael Sheridan took the oath for the judge pro tem. Weintraub and Sheridan are not newcomers to the DeKalb legal system. Weintraub was the county attorney for seven and a half years and served two years deputy chief operating officer and legal counsel to the chief operating officer. Weintraub also served five years as the county attorney for Gwinnett and three years as their assistant county attorney. Sheridan has practiced law for 11 years in DeKalb and is a partner at the law firm Davis & Sheridan, LLC. "These are the two best qualified people," Lary said. "These attorneys would serve the city best as judges. They have been working in the DeKalb County for years," he added.
