PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A new assistant U.S. attorney for Rhode Island has been sworn in.

Rhode Island U.S. Attorney Aaron Weisman announced the appointment and swearing-in of Christine Lowell as an assistant U.S. attorney this week.

Lowell has been assigned to the office’s criminal division.

A Massachusetts native, Lowell graduated in 2008 from Brown University, then from Northwestern University School of Law in 2012.

She previously served as an associate in the litigation and enforcement department of Ropes and Gray LLP in Boston, and spent seven months prosecuting criminal cases as a special assistant Middlesex County district attorney.


Weisman says she comes to the office with impressive academic and just as impressive experience representing clients at a major Boston law firm.
