Veteran Prosecutors Named To Leadership Positions At PA Office Of Inspector General

HARRISBURG, Pa., April 5, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Governor Tom Corbett today announced the appointment of two skilled and veteran prosecutors to leadership positions at the Pennsylvania Office of Inspector General.

Michael A. Sprow has been appointed as Acting Inspector General and K. Kenneth Brown, II will serve as Chief Counsel for the Office of Inspector General. Both men will begin their new duties immediately.

" Mike Sprow is a tireless prosecutor and a dedicated public servant, well-suited for the duties of Inspector General," Corbett said. "His experience as a criminal prosecutor with the Office of Attorney General, including complicated public corruption cases and child predator investigations, combined with the myriad of cases he handled as a Deputy District Attorney in Dauphin County, clearly demonstrate Mike's commitment to protecting Pennsylvanians."

Sprow has served as Chief Counsel to the Inspector General since November 2012.  A graduate of the William and Mary School of Law and Gettysburg College, Sprow served as law clerk for Judge George P. Kazen in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas.

"I am equally pleased with the General Counsel's appointment of Ken Brown to the position of Chief Counsel to the Office of Inspector General, lending his legal skills to an agency committed to eradicating waste and fraud," Corbett added. "Ken's work at the Attorney General's Office on high-profile corruption prosecutions has helped change the face of state government in Pennsylvania, holding public officials accountable for their actions."

Brown joined the Office of Inspector General in February 2013 following five years with the Criminal Prosecutions Section of the Attorney General's Office. He began his legal career as an Assistant District Attorney with the Lancaster County District Attorney's Office.

A graduate of the Dickinson School of Law and Juniata College, Brown has served as an instructor and faculty for various training sessions and legal education courses.

The Pennsylvania Office of Inspector General was created in 1987 to ensure that taxpayer monies are being spent appropriately and that the government is operating efficiently. The Office works to investigate and prevent fraud, waste, abuse, and misconduct in the programs, operations, and contracting of executive agencies under the Governor's jurisdiction.
