Morris to lead Alabama public corruption prosecution unit
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall has named federal prosecutor A. Clark Morris to lead the office division that prosecutes public corruption and white collar crime cases.
Marshall made the announcement Tuesday, a day after the departure of Matt Hart.
Morris will oversee the special prosecutions division beginning Jan. 7.
Morris is a 20-year veteran of the U.S. Department of Justice and has served as an assistant United States attorney in both the Middle and Northern Districts of Alabama. Morris has served as the first assistant in the U.S. attorney’s office in Montgomery since 2013.
Marshall said the appointment will enhance the attorney general’s office effectiveness in partnering with the federal prosecutors in joint investigations.
