JACKSON — John M. Dowdy Jr. has been appointed as the interim U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Mississippi.

Dowdy replaces Donald R. Burkhalter, who retired this month. Dowdy serves on an interim basis until President Barack Obama makes an appointment.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office said Dowdy was appointed by Chief U.S. District Judge Louis Guirola Jr. Dowdy has been the acting first assistant U.S. attorney for the past year and previously was the chief of the criminal division since 2004.

Dowdy, a Gulfport native, began his career with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in 1988.
