Rhode Island Superior Court Judge Susan McGuirl is retiring soon.
The Providence Journal reports McGuirl will step down on October 29th after two decades on the bench.
She presided over the contentious trial of the seven Narragansett Indians who were arrested in a 2003 state police raid of a tribal smoke shop in Charlestown. As the first woman to be named deputy attorney general in the state,
McGuirl was involved in the prosecution of Providence Mayor Buddy Cianci's assault case and the attempted murder trial of Newport socialite Claus von Bulow.
