JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Dale Freeman wins the race for Lawrence County Judge.
He received 266 votes to challenger John Thomison's 181 votes.
Freeman said he was happy to win and see Sheriff Jeff Yates win as well.
"It's good to not have anyone to run this fall," Freeman said. "We got a lot of projects going on, some new ones starting up that we need to finish. This is going to give the sheriff and I a chance to get some things done and get the new jail built and move Lawrence County forward."
Freeman said he would like to thank the people who voted for him and is excited to continue working for the county a little while longer.
