West Virginia's first female U.S. magistrate judge is retiring after serving for two decades.
Magistrate Judge Mary E. Stanley's last day on the bench is March 31.
She was appointed to the position in 1992 after serving as a federal prosecutor for more than 15 years.
Stanley graduated from the University of Virginia School of Law and moved to West Virginia in the early 1970s. She told the Charleston Gazette that employers at the time were unwilling to hire her for legal positions because she was a woman.
