from The Associated Press via U.S. News & World Report
Dallas County has sworn in its first black sheriff to lead the nation's seventh-largest jail system after former sheriff Lupe Valdez resigned to run for governor. Marian Brown took the oath during a midnight ceremony Monday.
The Dallas Morning News
reports that Brown has been with the department for three years and was Valdez's recommended choice for a successor. The 52-year-old Brown will serve as interim sheriff until voters elect a new sheriff in November.
