Assistant part-time District Attorney (AD) Cynthia Kukuvka resigned to become the law clerk for newly elected County Court Judge Rick Healy. This left a hole in the staff of Acting Wayne County District Attorney, Chris Bokelman.
Bokelman needed a seasoned lawyer to fill the position. Kukuvka handled the Courts in Sodus (Judge Putnam); Williamson (Judge Stritzel); Ontario (Judge Higgins); Walworth (Judge Young); and Marion (Judge Bonafede). After conducting interviews, one candidate for the AD job emerged. Scott Kadien, a practicing attorney since February of 2010, was appointed by Bokelman.
