Judge Stewart Biography

Honorable Rebecca Stewart, was elected as District Magistrate Judge for Chautauqua County in 2020.  Because Chautauqua and Montgomery counties are in the same judicial district, she is assigned by the Chief District Judge to hear cases in both counties, generally spending two days each week in Sedan, two days in Coffeyville and one day in Independence. Most of her caseload involves probate, bad debt and traffic cases, although she also handles criminal and juvenile cases in Chautauqua County.
