Spokane attorney William Hyslop was sworn in Thursday as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Washington.
Nominated to the position by President Donald Trump in May and confirmed in June, Hyslop returns to a position he occupied from 1991-93, after President George H.W. Bush nominated him to become the top federal prosecutor for all of Washington east of the Cascades.
Hyslop, 68, has practiced law in the Spokane area for 39 years. He is a longtime principal at the lawfirm Lukins & Annis and served as president of the Washington State Bar Association in 2015-16.
Hyslop will serve under Attorney General William Barr, who also served in that post during Hyslop’s first stint as U.S. Attorney.
