San Juan County District Court Judge Carolyn Jewett has announced that she is running for re-election. She has served as District Court Judge since January of 2019.
“During my first term, I gained a lot of experience figuring out what ‘access to justice’ really means,” stated Judge Jewett. “The COVID-19 pandemic turned our judicial system on its head and forced us all to adapt. I have been honored to work side by side with our other county departments, as well as collaborating with judges across the state at all court levels, to ensure our community has meaningful access to the courts despite emergency conditions.”
District Court is the lower court in San Juan County, with jurisdiction over misdemeanor crimes, small claims, infractions, name change petitions, protection order petitions, and civil lawsuits under $100,000.
