MICHIGAN CITY | A judge in a Michigan City courtroom has decided to step down after more than 20 years on the bench.

William Boklund has presided over LaPorte Superior Court 4 since 1993 when appointed to replace Susan Heminger after she died.

He was then elected to three six-year terms but won't seek a fourth term in 2014.

Boklund, 62, said it was a tough decision but wants to do some writing and spend leisure time with his wife.

"I feel like it's the appropriate time," said Boklund.

He announced his decision early to give people who might be interested in running an early chance to consider the opportunity.
