BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WMBB) – One of Bay County’s most experienced judges is stepping down from the bench.

Judge Joe Grammer has informed the governor’s office of his intentions to retire on August 31.

Grammer earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia in 1978 and his law degree from Mercer University in 1981.

State attorney Jim Appleman hired Grammer as a prosecutor in 1981, where he served as an assistant state attorney until he successfully ran for the county judgeship in 2008.

He was invested as a judge in January 2009 and has presided over county court for 15 years.

Grammer still has 2-years left on his current term. The governor’s office has not posted the position yet, but the judicial nominating committee began accepting applications Wednesday.

Committee members will select several finalists to send to the governor, who will appoint Judge Grammer’s replacement.
