DON'T TELL ME GOD ISN"T TRUE
It could be an interesting term for the first black female District Court Judge in Rockingham and Caswell Counties.
Erica Standfield Brandon was sworn in along with plenty of prayer and a repetition of "Don't tell me God isn't true" from Judge Brandon.
The courtroom was standing room only and the audience was probably 50% or more black. The courtroom had an air of a Sunday revival about it with a lot of "Amens!" from the congregation.
Presiding over the event was Judge Stan "Poe Lease" Allen. Judge Allen eased up on the restriction of no cameras or cell phones in the courtroom for the occasion.
Judge Brandon will certainly be an improvement over Judge Gentry who was said to be in office to round out his state retirement.
Governor Roy Cooper appointed Judge Brandon when Gentry retired.
