Former U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Oklahoma John Richter this fall will begin teaching at the University of Oklahoma College of Law, The Norman Transcript reported today. Richter’s wife Liesa serves as the law school’s dean of admissions.

Richter, who stepped down from his prosecuting post last month, will be teaching criminal procedure, drawing on his experience as a prosecutor and from other work in criminal law and public service. Before becoming interim U.S. Attorney in 2005 (and permanent in 2006), Richter was in private practice, was an assistant district attorney in Georgia and an Assistant U.S. Attorney in Oklahoma. In addition, Richter worked in the front office of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division from 2003 to 2005, serving as the principal deputy and then acting assistant attorney general.

Acting U.S. Attorney Robert Jon Troester is running the office until President Obama names a replacement for Richter.
