Posted: Updated:
MUSCOGEE COUNTY, GA (WTVM) -

Muscogee County Superior Court Judge John Allen is stepping down from the bench. He is known as a trailblazer, a man of great integrity, and someone you would want on your side if you are in trouble.

Friends, family, and colleagues in the community attended a reception at the Columbus Trade Center in honor of Allen. He became emotional as he reflected on his nearly 30 years on the bench, 20 of which were spent in his current position.

Allen, 70, is a decorated Vietnam fighter pilot and was raised in the Booker T. Washington public housing complex in Columbus.

He officially steps down on Oct. 31.
