LA PORTE COUNTY, Ind. — Wednesday night at the county commission meeting, there was a proclamation recognizing the late Judge Paul Baldoni. Judge Baldoni served as the judge of LaPorte Superior Court 3 for over three decades.

“It’s quite possible he is the longest serving Judge in LaPorte County’s history,” former La Porte County Sheriff’s Captain Mike Kellems said in a statement.

The entire county judiciary was present Wednesday night as were several retired judges.
