MERIDIAN, Miss. (AP) - A longtime judge in east central Mississippi has announced his plan to retire.

Sixty-nine-year-old Circuit Judge Robert Bailey says in a statement that he will step down from the bench on June 30 after serving the 10th Circuit District, which includes Lauderdale, Clarke, Kemper and Wayne counties, for more than 27 years.

Bailey, who earned both an undergraduate and law degree from the University of Mississippi, was in private practice for 17 years before being appointed to the Circuit Court in 1988.

Bailey says he is looking forward to spending time with his wife, their two children and their five grandchildren.
