OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Two district judges in Oklahoma County are retiring.

The Oklahoman (http://bit.ly/13SnBsc ) reports District Judges Jerry D. Bass and Kenneth C. Watson have more than 25 years of experience on the bench combined.

Bass was appointed a special judge in 1996 and was elected district judge in 1998. He has petitioned the court and been granted active retired status so he can continue acting as a judge on the ReMerge docket, which is a criminal diversion for mothers in Oklahoma County.

Watson was elected to the bench in 2006 after spending more than 30 years in private practice.

Bass will be succeeded by Don Andrews. Watson will be succeeded by Aletia Haynes Timmons. Both new district judges were elected in November.
