Jeske gets Hillsborough judgeship
Veteran attorney Paul Jeske got the nod from the Governor's Office Friday for a county judgeship. It was his eighth try at a judicial appointment, he said. He ran unsuccessfully for a circuit judgeship two years ago. Jeske has been in private practice since 1978 with law partner Patrick Sprague. He said he will meet with Hillsborough's chief judge on Monday to figure out a start date. Jeske replaces Tom Barber, who was elevated to a circuit judgeship in May.
