Barack Obama has named a new man to head federal law enforcement in the drug trafficking-prone US Virgin Islands, reports the Daily World. Ronald W. Sharpe is the new US Attorney for the District of the Virgin Islands.
Sharpe has deep roots and extended family in the area, according to the Daily World. ”His mom grew up in Plaisance and he still has a lot of relatives here,” his neice, Grace Thomas Garnier, told the paper.
Sharpe was confirmed by the US Senate after being named for the post by Obama, taking over duties earlier this month. Sharpe is the chief federal law enforcement officer in the region, supervising 41 people, including 16 attorneys, and is responsible for coordinating investigations across multiple agencies and the prosecution of all federal crimes.
