After more than 30 years with the Department of Justice, the top federal prosecutor in northern Iowa is hanging up his briefcase. Sean Berry joined the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Iowa in 1999 as an Assistant U.S. Attorney, and in the decades since has served stints as first assistant and chief of the criminal division for the office, which is based in Cedar Rapids and is responsible for all federal cases in the northern half of the state. He has led the office since February 2021, when U.S. Attorney Peter Deegan Jr. stepped down following the inauguration of President Joe Biden.
