Southern District of Ohio U.S. Attorney Gregory Lockhart will step down from his post at the end of the month, the Dayton Daily News reported this afternoon.
The Senate confirmed Lockhart as U.S. Attorney in 2001. He spent 14 years as an Assistant United States Attorney before he became the top federal prosecutor in the Southern District.
He also taught at University of Dayton’s College of Law and Wright State University’s Colleges of Political Science and Business while working at the U.S. Attorney’s office.
President Obama nominated Carter M. Stewart to be the next Southern District U.S. Attorney. The Senate Judiciary Committee endorsed Stewart earlier this month.
