An elated Barbara K. Hobbs became a Circuit Judge in the Second Judicial Circuit of Florida on Feb. 15 in a ceremony. Hundreds of people from throughout the 11 counties in the second judicial district attended the ceremony.
Hobbs was elected to the court during the General Election on Nov. 6, 2012. Hobbs, a Tallahassee native, carried Gadsden County by an overwhelming margin over her opponent.
A trial lawyer for more than 20 years, Hobbs said the ceremony was quite overwhelming.
