Thyer sworn in as US attorney in Arkansas

Former Jonesboro legislator Chris Thyer has been sworn in as the new U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas, reports the Associated Press. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that Chief U.S. District Judge Leon Holmes conducted the private ceremony on Friday.

President Barack Obama nominated Thyer on Dec. 1 and the U.S. Senate confirmed him for the post on Dec. 22. He will succeed Jane Duke as the district’s top prosecutor.

Most recently, Thyer has worked as a partner in a Jonesboro law firm.

The formal swearing-in ceremony for Thyer has not yet been scheduled.
