Beginning Monday Lane County will have a new District Attorney. It’s the first time the job will be held by a woman.
Oregon Governor Kate Brown appointed Patty Perlow as Lane County DA. The 52-year-old is filling the vacancy left by Alex Gardner. His new job is with the Oregon State Police as Director of the Forensic Services Division.
Perlow has been a prosecutor in the Lane County DA's Office since 1990, most recently serving as its Chief Deputy under Gardner.
