A former U.S. Attorney for Guam was sworn in as the territory’s attorney general Monday, Guam News Watch reported.
Lenny Rapadas, who led the U.S. Attorney’s offices in Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands from 2003 until 2010, will succeed Alicia Limtiaco. The Senate confirmed her as the U.S. Attorney for Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands in April.
Rapadas worked in the Guam attorney general’s office prior to his U.S. Attorney appointment.
“For almost 14 years, I prosecuted cases for you,” Rapadas said during his investiture, according to Guam News Watch. “I hope you saw me fight hard and more importantly, I hope you saw me fight fair.”
