KAMLOOPS - Kamloops's newest provincial court judge is a Crown prosecutor from the Shuswap and North Okanagan.

Mariane Ruth Armstrong will be sworn in as a provincial court judge in Kamloops next month.

This comes after provincial court judge Len Marchand Jr. was moved up to a Supreme Court position in Kelowna.

Armstrong has served as a Crown prosecutor in Salmon Arm and Vernon from 1989 to 2005, and from 2006 to this year.

She currently serves as the administrative Crown counsel in Salmon Arm.

Armstrong prosecuted a high-profile spanking case in Salmon Arm last year, where a mother and father got 12 months probation for assaulting their teenage daughter with a miniature hockey stick and a skipping rope as punishment for sending nude pictures on Snapchat.
