The Hon. David D. Kiely was sworn in Wednesday as the new Vanderburgh Circuit Court judge. A ceremony was scheduled for noon in the Vanderburgh Circuit courtroom.

Kiely is replacing Judge Carl Heldt who retired from the Vanderburgh Circuit Court after 14 years. In 1998, Kiely was appointed Magistrate of Vanderburgh Circuit Court, and 10 years later he was elected as Vanderburgh Superior Court judge.

Kiely ran unopposed in the November 2012 election to replace the retiring Heldt.

A third generation Evansville attorney, Kiely is a graduate of the University of Evansville and the Cumberland School of Law. He began practicing in 1990 with Kiely and Kiely Attorneys at Law.

In December, the Evansville Bar Association hosted a retirement celebration for Heldt. Heldt was presented with the Governor’s Distinguished Service Medal on behalf of Gov. Mitch Daniels.  

Daniels’ office has been interviewing candidates for Kiely’s now vacant seat in the Vanderburgh Superior Court. The governor is expected to fill the position before leaving office.
