STANFORD - Lincoln Circuit Court Judge William T. Cain is stepping down from the bench Jan. 1, but he's not going far.
After two decades of service, the judge will officially retire, then go on "senior status," working part time. He's ready for the break.
"It's been a good experience for 20 years," the judge said Thursday, "but it's time to slow down a little bit."
Cain, 61, of Somerset, is the second judge to leave the 28th Circuit Court in six months. Judge Daniel J. Venters announced his resignation in June. He was replaced by Robert E. Gillum, who was elected to the seat in November.
