Joyce takes down Liston
Her first priority will be the county’s second Sheley murder trial, she says
STERLING – Trish Joyce will take over the role of the county’s top prosecutor from the man who gave her her first job.
Joyce, a Democrat, beat Republican and Whiteside County Assistant State’s Attorney Pat Liston 13,651-7,092, or 66 percent to 44 percent of the vote, according to unofficial results from Tuesday’s election.
Joyce, 52, of Sterling, said she will be filling the “very big shoes” of Gary Spencer, who is retiring Nov. 30 after more than 30 years at the helm.
