Starting Feb. 28, a new magistrate will take the bench in Princeton.
Poe lost his bid for re-election in 2012. He was the unanimous choice of three circuit judges in Mercer County. Poe called his selection "like being born again" after falling short in the 2012 election.
He'll be sworn in on Feb. 28. He'll sit on the Princeton bench until the general election in 2016.
