SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A Utah judge is back on the bench following a health-related absence and a string of police calls to his house.
Third District Judge Stephen Henriod is back to work after agreeing to undergo counseling.
Police reports show three police calls to Henriod's home in the past year. In January, there was a domestic violence call in which deputies seized three guns. In February, a woman called to report a man threatened suicide. In April, a man called to reportedly attempt suicide.
According to court spokeswoman Nancy Volmer, Judge Sandra Peuler has deemed Henriod fit to return to work.
Volmer said the judge is aware of the health concerns involving Judge Henriod, and she has initiated steps to ensure the judge was able to return to the bench and handle his caseload.
Henriod returned to work on May 10th after a two-week absence.
