Cecil County shake-up

judgecartoonThough Cecil County may be under half a foot of snow today, its court system is plowing ahead with some administrative changes.

Judge Keith A. Baynes was named administrative judge of the Cecil County Circuit Court at the beginning of this year by Court of Appeals Chief Judge Mary Ellen Barbera, according to a news release from the Maryland Judiciary.

Judge V. Michael Whelan is going back to the bench full time after serving as administrative judge since October 2010.

Baynes has been a judge on the Cecil County Circuit Court since January 2011. He is the presiding judge of the drug treatment court.
