JUDICIAL NEWCOMER: Newly sworn Washtenaw Juvenile Court Judge Nancy Francis gets help from her mother and father, Emma and Albert Wheeler (in background), and her son, Joe Francis, in putting on her judicial robe Monday as she begins her new job. Francis, the first black judge in Washtenaw County, was sworn in by Michigan Supreme Court Justice Dennis W. Archer during a robing ceremony at the Washtenaw County Courthouse. Ceremonies also were conducted Monday for Francis at 14A-3 District Court in Chelsea and at 14th District Court in Ypsilanti. Francis was appointed by Gov. James Blanchard last month to fill the Probate Court vacancy left by the resignation of Judge Judith J. Wood.
