COLUMBUS — Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine Friday appointed Judge Amy C. Rosebrook to serve as the judge of Henry County Court of Common Pleas, General and Probate Divisions.
Rosebrook, who lives in Napoleon, will assume the office on Dec. 6 and will fill a judicial vacancy left by Judge John Collier, who retired Sept. 1. Rosebrook must run for election in November to complete the unexpired term ending May 8, 2023.
Rosebrook has served as the Napoleon Municipal Court judge since 2011, and prior to that, was an assistant prosecuting attorney for Henry County. She also worked as an associate attorney at Hoeffel, Funkhouser, Hanna, and Fisher from 1998 to 2003 before becoming a partner at Hanna, Fisher and Rosebrook for six years.
Rosebrook received her law degree from The University of Toledo College of Law and undergraduate degree from Ohio University. She currently is a trustee of the Association of Municipal and County Court Judges of Ohio and serves as a volunteer faculty member for the Ohio Supreme Court. Additionally, she served as the president of Henry County’s Bar Association in 2011.
Henry County Board of Elections Director Mary Detmer said the Henry County Republican Central Committee will handle the initial process of reviewing individuals who are interested in finishing the remainder of Rosebrook’s municipal court term and then recommend their top candidates to DeWine’s office, which will then decide on the appointment.
