White, Freshour sworn in

South Boston NewsSouth Boston News
Swearing-in ceremonies took place Thursday afternoon in Halifax for Circuit Judge Kim Slayton White and Commonwealth’s Attorney Michael Freshour, who takes over the position from White with her ascension to the bench. Administering the oath to White was her uncle, retired Judge and former delegate Frank Slayton. Judge Slayton noted the unique honor of being tapped to swear in a family member and spoke about how, during his retirement, he has had to fill in as a substitute judge with the Circuit Court seat unfilled. With White’s interim appointment this week by Gov. Bob McDonnell, “my retirement will become effective for real,” said Slayton. Kim White is flanked by her family as she accepts her oath. Moments later, Presiding Circuit Judge Joel Cunningham administered the oath of office to Freshour, who prior to his appointment as Commonwealth’s Attorney served as the chief deputy prosecutor at the Halifax office. An election to name a replacement to serve out White’s term as Commonwealth’s Attorney is expected to be set later this month; Freshour said he intends to run for the office. The election will be held sometime after the November presidential ballot. Freshour accepts the oath surrounded by his wife Melissa Fraser, their four children and his parents, Lynn and Alice Freshour of Spotsylvania County.
Halifax County Commonwealth's Attorny Kim Slayton White was sworn in as a circuit court judge in the 10th Judicial Circuit. Mike Freshour, chief deputy in the commonwealth's attorney's office was sworn in as the new Halifax County commonwealth's attorney.
