A clerk for Clark County District Court Judge Jackie Glass told The Associated Press that Glass, the judge who sentenced the former football star to nine to 33 years in prison for armed robbery and kidnapping in 2008, submitted her resignation to Nevada's governor on Tuesday.

Grace said in a release from CBS Television Distribution that she's leaving after the show's first season because of its relocation of production to Los Angeles from Atlanta.

Glass said in a statement that she's honored to take the new post and her last day in court in Las Vegas is June 10.

Glass has been known for her severe sentences and strong personality in the courtroom.
