North Las Vegas judge wins another term

Sean Hoeffgen will retain his seat as municipal judge in North Las Vegas’ Department 2 after capturing the majority of the vote in Tuesday’s general election.

With all precincts reporting, Hoeffgen received 5,369 votes or 56.34 percent of the total. His opponent, Marsha Kimble-Simms, collected 4,160 votes or 43.66 percent.

The two were separated by 25 votes in April’s primary election but neither received a majority, leading to Tuesday’s run off.

Hoeffgen will serve a four-year term beginning July 1.

Hoeffgen created the Habitual Offender Prevention and Education Court program, which assists participants in gaining steady employment to reduce recidivism.

He also started DUI Court in North Las Vegas, enabling harsher consequences for offenders.

Kimble-Simms is a practicing attorney licensed in Nevada and California and has served as a judge pro tem in North Las Vegas Justice Court. She’s a former prosecutor who runs her own practice specializing in criminal defense, personal injury, family law and business transactions.
