Tree Planted in Memory of Late Knox Co. Judge

A crowd gathered on the Knox County Courthouse lawn Tuesday to plant a tree in memory of the late Judge Ryan Johanningsmeier.

Johanningsmeier died in a plane crash near Lawrenceville, Illinois in late August.

Kari Johanningsmeier, the late judge’s sister, was among those in attendance…

Brian Johnson was recently appointed to fill the remaining term of Judge Johanningsmeier in Knox County Superior Court Two.

Johnson will also run un-opposed in Johanningmeier’s place in next month’s election.
