The retirement of Judge James Murphy left an empty seat in the 16th Judicial Circuit. On Monday, July 16, the Illinois Supreme Court appointed Kane County Assistant State’s Attorney Bianca Camargo as Circuit Court Judge to fill the empty position. 

Camargo worked her way through college and received her bachelor’s degree and juris doctorate from Northern Illinois University. She served as a victim advocate while in college before becoming an assistant state’s attorney in 2010. In addition to being a member of the Kane County Bar Association, she is also a member of the Protection of Individuals with Disabilities in the Criminal Justice System Task Force.

Camargo brings a wealth of experience to the position and serves as an inspiration to young girls willing to work hard to achieve their dreams. She was born in Aurora and has lived in Kane County since 1983.
