The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Baltimore announced Monday that it has hired three new prosecutors to focus exclusively on gangs in a community that has seen the presence of such groups as MS-13, TTP Bloods and the Black Guerilla Family.

“A record number of federal prosecutors are now pursuing cases against violent criminals, and the volume of federal violent crime prosecutions continues to increase,” said U.S. Atty. Rod Rosenstein in a prepared statement. “The new gang prosecutors will allow us to devote even more resources to joint efforts with our local, state and federal partners to put dangerous gangs out of business.”

The U.S. Attorneys office said the new gang unit will be funded for an initial two-year term.

The new gang prosecutors include: Clinton Fuchs, Thiru Vignarajah and William Moomau.

Fuchs served as a law clerk for U.S. District Judge William D. Quarles and Richard J. Leon before joining a private law firm. Moomau was previously chief of the Homicide Unit of Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’s Office. And Vagnarajah served as a law clerk for U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Guido Calabresi and Supreme Court Justice Stephen G. Breyer before joining a law firm.
