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 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.

As a young man, Judge Newton served as a missionary in Taiwan—Republic of China and is fluent in Mandarin Chinese. He is also Bishop of the Honey Creek Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints.
