Bradley County Criminal Court Judge Carroll Ross and McMinn General Sessions Court Judge James Watson, both of whom are retiring at the end of their terms, were honored during a meeting of the Southeast Tennessee Community Corrections Program advisory board last week. “It’s been a great trip for me. I have really enjoyed the last 17 years,” Ross said. Criminal Court Judge Amy Reedy said she was impressed with Ross’s leadership and vision to improve the court process for victims and defendants. Watson, who has served in the court system since 1986, said his father instilled in him the importance of doing his best. He was presented with a state proclamation declaring “Judge James Watson day,” the Cleveland Banner reports.
