Williamson County to swear in the first Juvenile Court Judge, Sharon Guffee
Sharon E. Guffee will be sworn in as Williamson County’s first Juvenile Court Judge on Wednesday, Dec. 12 at 2 p.m. In June, the Williamson County Commission voted unanimously to appoint Sharon Guffee for the position effective Jan. 1, 2013. The Oath of Office will be administered by Tennessee’s Supreme Court Justice Cornelia A. Clark at the Historic Williamson County Courthouse in the Public Square in Franklin. Justice Clark became the second woman to serve as Chief Justice in the Tennessee Supreme Court in 2010.
Sharon Guffee is a graduate of the University of South Carolina with a B.S. in Nursing and J.D. from Nashville School of Law. She previously worked as an Assistant District Attorney for the 21st Judicial District and in private practice of law. She was appointed Juvenile Court magistrate in 2004. She is married to Johnny Guffee, long time Williamson County resident and son of Dr. Harry Guffee. “Serving Williamson County’s children and families is a wonderful opportunity,” said Sharon Guffee. “Today’s children are the future and, the number one priority of my courtroom is to make a positive difference in their lives.”
