A local attorney has received word he will be moving to the other side of the bench. Donald M. Flack (pictured) will be sworn in as a new Associate Judge in the coming weeks. He will be replacing the retiring Nelson F. Metz.

Flack explains the process of becoming the judge.

Flack comments

Flack has been the sole practitioner of Flack Law Office since 2008, and an Assistant State's Attorney in Madison County since 2010. He will likely have to resign from his position on the Bethalto Village Board once he is sworn in as a judge.
