LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Senate has confirmed Andre Birotte Jr. as the next U.S. attorney for the Central District of California.
Birotte, currently inspector general for the Los Angeles Police Commission, was confirmed by the Senate Thursday. He was nominated to the post by President Barack Obama.
The 43-year-old Birotte will oversee an office of about 275
prosecutors responsible for a seven-county jurisdiction covering Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. The office is headquartered in Los Angeles.
Birotte replaces Thomas P. O'Brien who announced in August that he was stepping down.
