U.S. Attorney Fitzgerald To Talk Life After Chicago

U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald plans to talk about his decision to step down as Chicago’s top federal prosecutor.

Fitzgerald issued a written statement Wednesday saying he will step down at the end of June and take the summer off before considering other job possibilities.

At a Thursday news conference he will be asked about his decision and future plans.
Many who have followed his career say he will have no shortage of options after nearly a quarter century of prosecuting terrorists, mobsters, corrupt public officials and even an aide to a sitting vice president.

Among the possibilities being suggested for Fitzgerald: private law practice, general counsel of a Fortune 500 company or a high public office such as FBI director or attorney general.  Fitzgerald is married and has two children.
