NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Court of Criminal Appeals judges Jeffrey S. Bivins and Roger A. Page have been retained by Tennessee voters.
Both won approval by approximately 3-1 margins in Thursday's election asking voters to retain or replace them. Judges rarely lose such votes in the state.
Bivins, on the Middle Division of the court, was appointed to the court last summer. Before that, he was a Circuit Court judge for Hickman, Lewis, Perry and Williamson counties.
Page, on the Western Division, was appointed by Gov. Bill Haslam last December to replace the late Judge J.C. McLin after serving as a Circuit Court judge for Chester, Henderson and Madison counties since 1998.
