Two judicial candidates — Rod Souza and William J. Speare — led the field in unofficial final county results in the race to replace state District Judge G. Todd Baugh of Billings.
I made a decision to run against Judge Baugh in December, 2013, because voters want a judge who is more in tune with this community's sense of justice. Unlike the other candidates who filed much later, I did not run after being denied a judicial appointment.
Corbit Harrington, a senior deputy county attorney who prosecutes child abuse and neglect cases in Yellowstone County, became the first candidate to announce he’ll file for the district court judge seat held the last 30 years by G. Todd Baugh.
Corbit Harrington smiles toward a crowd at the McCormick Cafe on Friday after announcing his bid for district judge.
At the end of March, Yellowstone County had 108 more children in foster care than it did at the same time last year — 386 compared with 278.
