West Virginia U.S. Attorney Sharon Potter is stepping down after three years on the job, following many other Bush-appointed U.S. Attorneys who have quit in this transitional year, the Intelligencer Wheeling News-Register reports.

“When the opportunity to serve arose in 2006, I was honored to take on that role and hope that my tenure has been marked by a sense of fair, but firm, prosecutions,” she said, according to the paper. “We have focused on aggressively prosecuting cases involving illegal drugs, firearms, child pornography and tax fraud, and the caseload for this district has steadily increased over the past several years.”

Potter will be honored at a farewell event on Sept. 25 at the Federal Building in Wheeling, W. Va., the paper said.
