Gov. Mitch Daniels conducted the ceremony for Rudolph Pyle, the new judge of the Madison Circuit Court. He was a deputy prosecutor in Madison County since 2002 and was an Indiana State Trooper for four years.

The Anderson Republican will complete the term of longtime Judge Fredrick Spencer, who resigned.

“You can sentence someone to jail for a really long period of time for what they’ve done and they can deserve that, but treating them with respect is important and the public expects impartial judges and reliability and results,” said Judge Pyle.

“Justice must be blind in these choices which we take very seriously are blind to anything except quality. I am convinced we have the best person,” said Gov. Daniels.

Judge Pyle went right to work with his first case, sealing the deal for a family adoption.
