Hayes named acting U.S. attorney for Western Washington

Annette L. Hayes has been named as acting U.S. attorney for Western Washington, taking over for Jenny Durkan, who stepped down Tuesday.

Hayes will take over the office while U.S. Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell seek a replacement candidate to submit to Obama for Senate confirmation.

Hayes has served as the first assistant U.S. attorney since 2010. In that role, she has been second-in-command  and a key leader in both criminal and civil litigation in the office, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Hayes joined the U.S. Attorney’s Office in 1997 as an assistant U.S. attorney in the Criminal Division. In 2002, she became the deputy supervisor of the Complex Crimes Unit, where she prosecuted cyberhacking and intellectual property cases while working with law enforcement on outreach to the private sector.

In 2005, she became one of the supervisors of the General Crimes Unit, where she worked closely with and trained many new attorneys on a range of federal crimes including child exploitation, drug, fraud, identity theft, immigration and violent crimes cases.

Hayes is a graduate of Cornell Law School and Williams College.
