Kevin W. Techau Resigns as United States Attorney

On Friday, March 10, 2017, Kevin W. Techau announced his resignation as United States Attorney effective midnight on that date.

Techau stated, “Iowa has excellent federal, state and local law enforcement officers across the state. It has been a fulfilling and rewarding experience to have served in this office for the past three years with those professionals. I am very grateful that I had the opportunity to lead the men and women who work so hard in the United States Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Iowa. They are a top-notch group of public servants and I am very honored to have been their colleague."

Techau was appointed United States Attorney for the Northern District of Iowa by President Barack Obama on November 7, 2013, and unanimously confirmed by the United States Senate on February 12, 2014.

First Assistant United States Attorney Sean R. Berry will serve as Acting United States Attorney pending an interim or permanent appointment by the Attorney General or the President.
