MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) -- Richard Moore, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Alabama, announced that he is officially retiring from his position on Friday.

U.S. Attorneys are appointed by the President, and it is normal practice for the appointees to retire or resign from office when there is a shift in the White House.

Moore was appointed by former President Trump in 2017. President Biden will choose his replacement.
