Gov. Scott Walker has appointed a prosecutor and court commissioner to fill spots on benches in Chippewa and Jefferson counties.
Walker on Wednesday announced that he had appointed Robert Dehring to the Jefferson County Circuit Court. Dehring will replace Judge David Wambach, who is retiring.
Dehring is a court commissioner in Waukesha County. He was previously a court commissioner and assistant corporation counsel in Jefferson County, as well as a child support attorney in Racine County.
