Santa Barbara County's new district attorney was sworn in this morning.
The same judge who swore in Joyce Dudley as an attorney 20 years ago gave her the oath of office before a packed crowd inside the county building. After a bitter campaign, dudley says she is ready to move forward.
"As we know in life, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. I feel as a result of this being a rigorous campaign that I'll be an even better district attorney," Dudley said.
She is replacing acting D.A. Ann Bramsen, who took over after the late Christie Stanley stepped down for health reasons.
