Bucks County names new DA

Bucks County judges have promoted someone who's been an assistant district attorney since 1995 to interim district attorney. Michelle Henry replaces Diane Gibbons, who was sworn in Friday morning as a Common Pleas judge.

It was eight years ago that the judges unanimously selected Gibbons to finish out Alan Rubenstein's term when voters elected him to the bench.

President Judge David Heckler says Henry was chosen "by a hefty majority" in a closed meeting Friday afternoon, but not unanimously.
