MIAMI (AP) - South Florida's chief federal prosecutor has been named by Attorney General Eric Holder to a national advisory board.
Holder announced this week that Miami-based U.S. Attorney Wifredo Ferrer will be one of eight new top prosecutors on the Attorney General's Advisory Committee. Each of the appointees will serve two-year terms.
The panel is essentially the voice of the nation's U.S. attorneys in advising Holder on a wide range of issues, including policy, management and operation of the offices.
Ferrer and Holder previously worked together in the 1990s at the Justice Department under former Attorney General Janet Reno. Ferrer has served as South Florida's top federal prosecutor since May 2010.
