Newly-elected public officials were sworn in Monday at the 2010 annual organizational meeting of the Essex County Board of Supervisors.

Sprague said despite the short notice, her office is prepared to handle its first drug case.

"These are pretty routine, these types of round-ups," she said. "With 10 cases coming in, of course it's always a burden on the office to get coordinated and get plea offers and figure out who is going to be covering what. But as far as the caseload is concerned, these are pretty routine for me from my experience over in Clinton County."

All 10 subjects were arraigned before Essex County Court Judge Richard Meyer.
