JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

David Boling, who beat incumbent Craighead County District Court Judge Keith Blackman in March, was officially sworn into office Monday.

It happened at the Craighead County Courthouse Annex.

Boling received confirmation from the governor that he would fill the remainder of Judge Curt Huckaby's uncompleted term.

Judge Huckaby passed away in June, after battling ALS.

Chief Justice Howard Brill appointed Boling's father, retired Circuit Judge Larry Boling, as special circuit judge to administer the oath of office to Boling.

In January, Tommy Fowler will join David Boling as Craighead County District Court Judge, position 2.
