A veteran prosecutor of federal organized crime cases has announced his retirement, the U.S. Attorney's Office said Tuesday. Kevin R. March is ending a 24-year career of prosecuting mob figures in Florida, Detroit and New Jersey.
"His ability to try complex and sometimes dangerous criminal organizations cannot be underscored enough," U.S. Attorney Charles R. Wilson said in a statement. "His retirement will be a major loss." Besides prosecuting mobsters who formed the basis of the book and movie Donnie Brasco, March won corruption convictions of a U.S. marshal and the mayor of Sunrise in South Florida.
Last month, March withdrew from the extortion case pending against former Tampa officials Ronnie Mason and David Carr, citing unspecified health problems.
