Carlos E. Jane of Lexington was sworn in as district court judge for Davidson and Davie counties on Friday.

He was appointed by Gov. Roy Cooper, and recommended by a majority of his colleagues and judges in the 22B district.

He is a graduate of UNC-Greensboro and the Wake Forest University School of Law. He has practiced law for more than 20 years in North Carolina courts.

Jane’s parents escaped the dictatorship of Fidel Castro to come to the United States before he was born.

Wendy Terry, president of the district bar, said Jane is a highly-respected member of the bar who is a “first generation American whose family escaped the tyrannical rule of a dictator and has carved out an important and successful life that serves the communities of Davidson and Davie counties.”
