Sharon Guffee has been named the first juvenile court judge for Williamson County following the county commission’s unanimous vote to appoint her to the post, effective Jan. 1, 2013. Guffee will take the bench but will stand for election in the next general election, which will be held in 2014. Due to the increased demands and caseload, Williamson County created, by legislation, a separate juvenile court. Guffee is a graduate of the Nashville School of Law. She previously worked for the 21st Judicial District and in the private practice of law. She was appointed part-time Juvenile Court Magistrate in 2004 and full-time magistrate in 2007.
