Hinesley takes judge's seat in runoff

Hal Hinesley will be the Toombs Judicial District's next Superior Court Judge.

With 94 percent of the precincts reporting early Wednesday, Mr. Hinesley had received 4,518 votes (67.7 percent), while his runoff opponent Jimmy Plunkett had received 2,158 votes (32.3 percent).

The Toombs district covers six counties: McDuffie, Warren, Wilkes, Glascock, Taliaferro and Lincoln.

"The committees I had in each of the counties worked very hard to get the vote out," Mr. Hinesley said Wednesday morning. "I certainly want to thank my friends and supporters for all the hard work they put in."

Mr. Hinesley was the top vote-getter in each county, including McDuffie -- a switch from the July 20 tabulations when Mr. Plunkett carried McDuffie.

Mr. Hinesley will take office Jan. 1, following the retirement of Superior Court Judge Purnell Davis.

He will remain Toombs Circuit Juvenile Court Judge until Sept. 30 this year, when Superior Court Judges Davis and Roger Dunaway will appoint a new juvenile judge to a four-year term.
