WASHINGTON — There’s no shortages of changes in the U.S. Attorney offices around the country these days.

In the New York Southern District, newly installed U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara announced on Monday the promotion of a number of prosecutors including Boyd Johnson III, who is one of the candidates the White House has  interviewed  to head the DEA, and who headed the infamous Eliot Spitzer probe.

In Baltimore, U.S. Atty. Rod J. Rosenstein, a holdover from the Bush administration, announced the creation of a three-lawyer, two paralegal, Asset Forfeture and Money Laundering Section.

“This new unit will work with federal authorities with state and local officails on a wide range of cases in wihch federal forgeiture and money laundering statutes can help punish and deter crime,” Rosenstein said in a prepared statement.

In New York, Reuters news service reported, that Boyd Johnson moves up to the number two spot in the office as deputy U.S. Attorney.  He headed the probe into the Emperors Club VIP, that resulted in four guilty pleas. Spitzer was never charged, but the scandal forced him to resign as governor.

Other promotions in the New York office, according to Reuters, include:

  • Raymond Lohier was named chief of the criminal division’s securities and commodities fraud task force.
  • Miriam Rocah becomes chief of the criminal division’s organized crime unit.
  • Daniel Stein jumps to chief of the criminal division’s public corruption unit.
