BOSTON (AP) - Springfield District Court has a new judge.

The Republican (https://bit.ly/1J6AEdz ) reports that the Governor’s Council this week unanimously confirmed attorney Patrick Sabbs’ nomination to become a judge in the court.

The 53-year-old Sabbs currently heads the criminal bureau of the state attorney general’s western Massachusetts regional office. He previously spent 18 years as a criminal prosecutor with the Hampden district attorney’s office. He was also once a television director and producer.

During a public hearing on his nomination, Sabbs’ supporters praised his compassion and respect for others, including colleagues, court personnel, victims and defendants.

Sabbs said then that his primary motivation for seeking a judgeship “has been my dedication to public service.”

Sabbs is married with two children and lives in South Hadley.
