A familiar face will soon replace Richland County Common Pleas Judge James Henson, who retires Friday. Governor John Kasich has appointed First Assistant Richland County Prosecutor Brent Robinson to replace him. Robinson says his approach will be the same as it is for all judges; to strike a balance between punishment and rehabilitation, while protecting the public. Robinson will be sworn-in Friday at one o'clock in Judge James DeWeese's courtroom. He'll take the bench next Monday. Robinson will have to run in November to retain the seat for the remainder of the unexpired term, which ends January 1st, 2017. He plans to serve for as long as voters will let him.
