PARIS — Bethel attorney Jarrod Crockett will replace Dana Hanley as the Oxford County judge of probate.

Crockett defeated his Democratic opponent, attorney Jennifer Kreckel of Rumford, on Tuesday.

As of 1 p.m. Wednesday, vote counts from Byron, Stow, Sweden and Upton had not been reported.

Hanley is retiring from the position at the end of the year.

Born and raised in Oxford County, Crockett grew up in a logging family in Bethel. He enlisted in the U.S. Army at age 17, attended college on an ROTC scholarship and became an Army officer for six years on active duty.

After law school, he returned to practice law and is a partner in the firm of Siegel & Crockett.

He served for six years in the Maine Legislature, four years on the Legislature’s Judiciary Committee, and has continued his military service as a major in the U.S. Army Reserve.
