Judge Peter Marshall will step down from the Volusia County court bench after two decades as a judge.
Elected as a county court judge in 1993, Marshall will retire at the end of his term, which expires Jan. 7.
"It has been a privilege and an honor to serve as a county judge for Volusia County," he said.
Marshall, 66, of DeLand, hears criminal cases at the Volusia County Courthouse in DeLand. He was previously assigned to Daytona Beach and also served as the administrative Volusia County court judge. During his career, he was a mentor for new judges and served as president of Volusia County Mediation Services. He also was active with the Conference of County Court Judges of Florida and has served on several Florida Supreme Court committees.
In November, attorney Christopher Kelly was elected to Marshall's county court seat. He will take office Jan. 8.
