U.S. Attorney Michael Moore resigns

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – U.S. Attorney Michael Moore announced he’s resigning from the position. 

Moore sent a letter to President Barack Obama on Monday. Moore was appointed the position in October 2010. 

A news release says Moore “oversaw the prosecution of several matters involving national security, including export cases involving individuals who were selling military parts and supplies to terrorist organizations.”

Moore recently announced 37 people were indicted for their roles in a multi-state sex trafficking ring that freed 15 women working in sexual slavery. 

“As U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia, Michael J. Moore has been a faithful advocate for the people of his district and an outstanding guardian of our nation’s laws,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch said. 

41NBC reached out to the U.S. Attorney’s office in Macon to see what made Moore choose to resign. A communications relations assistant says he’s holding that information for a later date.
