One of the Sangamon County judges up for retention next month has been ranked as “not recommended” in a survey of local attorneys.
Judge Leslie Graves is the only judge on the ballot to score below the 65-percent threshold necessary to be recommended for retention.
Fewer than 61-percent of attorneys said she met the requirements of the office of judge.
Graves was scored low on legal ability and court management.
Voters next month will decide whether to retain Graves and four other 7th Circuit judges.
A judge will stay on the bench if they receive 60-percent of more of the vote.
