Florida’s Middle District has a new top prosecutor charged with enforcing the law in 35 counties representing nearly 11 million people.

Robert E. O’Neill, 53, was sworn in as U.S. attorney for Florida’s Middle District this week after being nominated in June by President Barack Obama.

The U.S. Senate confirmed O’Neill last week; O’Neill takes over for A. Brian Albritton, who resigned to take a position at a private law firm. Albritton served as Middle District U.S. Attorney since October 2008, according to a press release announcing his departure.

O’Neill has served as an assistant U.S. attorney with the middle district since 1993, where he has since risen through the ranks. More on his career can be seen on his U.S. Senate questionnaire here.
