INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Governor Mike Pence is tapping Steven Hostetler to serve on the St. Joseph Superior Court.

Hostetler will leave the firm of Thorne Grodnik to join the bench on June 3. He graduated from Olivet Nazarene University and received his law degree from the Indiana University School of Law.

Pence announced his pick Thursday. Hostetler will replace retiring Judge Michael Scopelitis. The St. Joseph County Superior Court Nominating Commission included Hostetler in a list of four candidates it sent to the governor.
