Theeler Replaces Judge Joseph Neiles

Criminals will face a new judge in Minnehaha County. 

Camela Theeler was sworn in Friday as the newest judge in the Second Circuit.  Theeler, a native of Pierre, says one of the biggest challenges of being a judge these days is the case load. 
"I know they were happy to get me on board to help with the volume when you have judges coming in and out but we really try to focus on each an every case and do the best we can to do justice, regardless of the volume we still have to deal with them on a case by case basis" Theeler said.

Theeler replaces Judge Joseph Neiles who retired. 

This article has been revised to reflect the following correction: Corrected the spelling of Judge Neiles last name from Nieles.
