TERRE HAUTE — The next Lunch with a Lawyer is set for 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Monday at the Wabash Senior Activity Center at 300 S. Fifth St. in Terre Haute.

He received his bachelor’s degree in business administration from Indiana State University and Juris Doctorate from the Brigham Young University J. Reuben Clark School of Law. For 15 years, he worked for the Terre Haute law firm of Wright, Shagley & Lowery.

Newton was first elected Judge of Vigo Superior Court, Division 4 in November 2004 and was re-elected in November 2010.

He has worked with the Vigo County Prosecutor’s Office, the Public Defender’s Office, and the Council on Domestic Abuse to educate victims and defendants on how to break the cycle of violence.
