Ronald Sharpe Chosen to Fill Longtime Vacant U.S. Attorney Post in USVI

A United States Attorney position that has gone unfilled for a few years now has a nominee to fill its slot. Ronald W. Sharpe was recently nominated by President Barack Obama to fill the position that covers the U.S. Virgin Islands. The move will allow Sharpe to stay in the role he has filled in an interim capacity since 2009.

In a written statement, President Obama expressed well wishes for one of his newest nominees for U.S. Attorney.

“I am proud to nominate Ronald W. Sharpe to serve as United States Attorney,” the president said. “I am confident he will serve the people of the Virgin Islands with distinction.”

If his nomination is approved by the U.S. Senate, Sharpe will permanently serve along with 92 other U.S. Attorneys across the United States and its related territories. In his interim role, Sharpe handles much of the legal work in the Virgin Islands where the U.S. is a party in trials. He prosecutes criminal cases brought by the federal government. He also prosecutes and defends civil cases where the U.S. is a party.

Sharpe is no stranger to the U.S. Attorney’s office. Prior his current position, he served as the First Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Virgin Islands from 2008-2009. He filled the role of Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia from 1995-2008. Before his work with the federal government, Sharpe was an associate at Jones, Day, Reavis & Pogue in Washington, D.C.

Del. Donna Christensen (D-VI) was also pleased with the president’s nomination of Sharpe and what it means for her island district.

“This position has gone unfilled for a long time. The nomination will bring some stability and certainty to the conduct of this important office,” Rep. Christensen said.

“I congratulate Asst. U.S. Attorney Sharpe on this nomination,” she added.

Atty. Sharpe graduated from Tulane University in New Orleans in 1987. The Washington, D.C. native earned his Juris Doctor degree from Stanford Law School in 1991.
