U.S. Attorney Diane Humetewa resigns

PHOENIX, Ariz. - On July 28, U.S. Attorney Diane Humetewa announced she would resign from her position as United States Attorney for the District of Arizona effective Aug. 2. Humetewa, a Hopi and the first Native American female to hold this position, was confirmed by the Senate and sworn in on Dec. 17, 2007. One of Humetewa's first acts as U.S. Attorney was announcing the indictment of then-Congressman Richard Renzi on 33 counts of embezzlement and the misuse of his public office for financial gain.
