Western, Mid-Michigan Get New Federal Prosecutor

Western Michigan has a new top federal prosecutor.

Patrick Miles Jr. took the oath of office Monday at the federal courthouse in Grand Rapids. He's a 44-year-old Grand Rapids lawyer who was nominated by President Barack Obama and recently confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

The U.S. attorney's office in western Michigan has not been led by a White House appointee for more than five years.

Obama first nominated Michigan lottery chief M. Scott Bowen for U.S. attorney, but the Senate never acted and Bowen remains in state government.

The office has been in the hands of Don Davis since fall 2008. He's been a federal prosecutor in Grand Rapids for more than 35 years.

The Western District of Michigan consists of 49 counties, including all of the Upper Peninsula.
