President Barack Obama on Friday announced his intention to nominate a former member of the U.S. Marshals Service to be the director of that Justice Department agency.
Stacia Hylton, who worked for the U.S. Marshals service from 1980 to 2004, would replace John Clark, who was appointed by President George W. Bush in 2006. She held various leadership posts in the U.S. Marshals Service, including Acting Deputy Director. Hylton also served as the Federal Detention Trustee from 2004 to 2010.
