Tulane hires former U.S. Attorney Jim Letten


New Orleans, La. -Tulane University confirms to FOX 8 News former United States Attorney Jim Letten will take a job at their law school.

Tulane says Letten will be the Assistant Dean for Experiential Learning.  Letten stepped down as U.S. Attorney late last year. 

He had recently been under mounting pressure ever since two of his prosecutors, Sal Perricone and Jan Mann admitted to posting comments about cases online.

Letten stayed with the office for a brief time to help with the transition.

The Department of Justice named Dana Boente as Letten's interim replacement.
