Dan Bowman

CAREER ENDING — Magisterial District Justice Dan Bowman will retire at the end of 2021. He has served in the role since 1998.

A woman walked into Magisterial District Justice Dan Bowman’s courtroom on Monday to face charges for driving with a suspended license. She didn’t argue she was innocent, but pointed out she was driving home a cancer patient using his car at his request. When the officer heard her story, he requested the charges be lessened so her suspension was not extended and Bowman agreed.

“If you think you have any type of defense, if you think you have any type of argument, you should ask for a hearing,” Bowman said.
