(York) -- Longtime York County Judge Sheryl Ann Dorney has retired.
Dorney became the first female judge to serve on the York County Court of Common Pleas when she was elected in 1987.
An announcement from court administrator indicates Dorney plans to travel and spend time with family in her retirement, which officially began yesterday.
Dorney's seat on the bench will be up for election in 2015, but Governor Corbett could appoint a judge to serve in the interim. Any appointment would be subject to confirmation by the state Senate.
