Timothy Heaphy was sworn in as U.S. Attorney the Roanoke-based Western District of Virginia this morning, the Rockbridge Weekly reported today .
According to the Rockbridge Weekly, at the swearing in, Heaphy said he felt a deep sense of honor taking the post. “This office will continue to work with all of the diverse communities in the Western District to both prevent crime and punish those who break the law. I look forward to that important effort, and to working to promote justice in the days ahead,” Heaphy said.
Heaphy, who was confirmed  by the Senate yesterday, will replace acting U.S. Attorney Julia Dudley.
Formerly a partner at Charlottesville law firm McGuireWoods , Heaphy will become the first presidentially-appointed U.S. Attorney for the Roanoake office since Jim Brownlee. Brownlee resigned last spring to run for the Republican nomination for state attorney general. He lost  to Ken Cuccinelli.
