PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - In a story June 30 about a new judge sworn in to Rhode Island’s Family Court, The Associated Press erroneously reported Lia Stuhlsatz’s role on the court. She is a judge, not the chief judge.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Raimondo swears in new Family Court judge

There’s a new judge on Rhode Island’s Family Court

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - There’s a new judge on Rhode Island’s Family Court.

Democratic Gov. Gina Raimondo on Wednesday swore in Lia Stuhlsatz. She replaces Judge Francis J. Murray, who retired in April.

Raimondo says Stuhlsatz’s “passion, intellect and demeanor” represent what she looks for in a candidate for the bench.

Stuhlsatz, of Rumford, has been an attorney since 1996. In 1999, she joined Rhode Island Legal Services, where she most recently worked as the supervisor of the Family Preservation Unit.

Previously, she served as a public defender in New Hampshire and worked for the Incarcerated Mothers Program through New York-based Edwin Gould Services for Children and Families.

She earned her bachelor’s degree from Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts, and her law degree from the City University of New York School of Law.
