LAS VEGAS (AP) — Clark County has its new district attorney, and Las Vegas is beginning a process to fill the City Council seat he left.
Steve Wolfson was sworn in by Nevada Supreme Court Justice Michael Cherry during a Tuesday ceremony before the Clark County Commission.
Wolfson is 57. He’s a former county and federal prosecutor turned defense lawyer. He’s been in private practice in Las Vegas since 1987.
He’s married to Jackie Glass, the former Clark County District Court judge who sentenced O.J. Simpson to prison.
Wolfson will serve the three remaining years of David Roger’s term. Roger retired Jan. 3 after nine years as DA.
A special election will be held March 20 to replace Wolfson on the City Council.
Candidates can file campaign paperwork Tuesday and Wednesday.
