BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Former East Baton Rouge Parish Juvenile Judge Kathleen Stewart Richey has landed a position heading a statewide children’s advocacy association.

Richey, a Democrat who served as the parish’s first juvenile judge for more than two decades, took over as LouisianaChildren.org’s chief executive officer on Monday.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1cgx40N ) the association lobbies the Legislature to support laws favorable to children, provides support to family-friendly programs and works closely with child advocacy centers and CASA in Louisiana.

Richey lost her seat on the bench to a Republican newcomer, former prosecutor Adam J. Haney, in November.

Before she was elected judge in 1990, Rickey represented children as a public defender.
