Stacy Lindeman Lynch
For Coffee County General Sessions Judge
Principled. Proven. Focused.
I have had the honor of serving as the Magistrate for the Juvenile Court of Coffee County, presiding over the Safe Baby and Family Treatment Courts and hearing Juvenile Court cases as needed for the past year and half, while continuing my criminal and civil law practice. During my time on the bench, I have gained the invaluable experience required to manage a courtroom; the judgment necessary to equitably resolve matters; and the ability to empathize with parties while continuing to apply the law. I am compassionate but resolute in my convictions as a Judge which makes me uniquely qualified for this position.
I was appointed Magistrate for the Juvenile Court in July 2018, by former General Sessions and Juvenile Court Judge Tim Brock to oversee the Family Treatment Court and Safe Baby Court. These recovery courts focus on providing a comprehensive treatment program for parents and children affected by substance abuse disorders where children have been removed or are in danger of being removed from their parents. The mission of these Courts is to reduce the trauma caused to children from their repeated removals as a result of continued substance abuse and to build stronger families and a stronger community.
As the Magistrate for these developing Courts, I developed the policy and procedure manual, taking the best practices from family recovery courts throughout the country. I continue to work with other Safe Baby Court Judges and Magistrates in Tennessee in an effort to learn from one another and to expand the impact these revolutionary family recovery courts can make throughout our State.
What Motivates Me
As an attorney and a mother, I know the importance of continuing the focus on recovery in both the criminal justice system and family courts to make significant changes in our community. I assisted in setting up the first Safe Baby and Family Treatment Courts in the State of Tennessee here in Coffee County and continue to look at other solutions to keep children safe while keeping families together. I want to continue what we have started in Coffee County with the Safe Baby and Family Treatment Courts and that is why am asking for your
