Rocky Mount NC – Evans sworn in as new D.A.

More than 100 people filled the Rocky Mount Judicial Center on Friday to congratulate Robert A. Evans as he became the first black district attorney ever sworn into office in Eastern North Carolina.

Evans, a former district court judge appointed this week by Gov. Bev Perdue to replace retiring District Attorney Howard Boney, became the second black lead prosecutor in the state. As head of the Seventh Prosecutorial District, Evans will oversee cases in Nash, Edgecombe and Wilson counties. (Rocky Mount Telegram)
