Perry County Circuit Judge Released From Hospital

The Perry County circuit judge is out of the hospital.

Judge Bill Engle was released Friday morning from the Hazard ARH and is doing fine.

He collapsed Tuesday at the Perry County Justice Center.

Engle tells Mountain News he was diagnosed with diverticulitis, which caused internal bleeding.

Other judges have been filling in for him this week.

Engle says he's planning to go back to work Monday for a few hours, and hopes to get back to a normal work schedule sometime next week.
