Sumner County General Sessions Judge Mike Carter was sworn in yesterday inside his courtroom in Gallatin. He takes the bench for the first time Monday. The former Gallatin attorney, who lives in Hendersonville, was appointed through a 15-vote majority of the 24-member Sumner County Commission in March. Carter will be the county's third General Sessions judge, assisting James Hunter with handling 30,000 adult civil and criminal cases on average each year, the Tennessean reports.
