Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy announced Tuesday the appointments of three assistant chief prosecutors.

Worthy’s appointments include two former judges. Isidore Torres, who previously was on the Wayne County Circuit Court and 36th District Court, was named director of the Wayne County Fraud and Corruption Investigation Unit, and Anthony Guerriero, who served on benches in Dearborn and Allen Park, was named chief of legislation, grants and community relations.

Also named was Jerome Crawford as chief assistant prosecutor.

“These men have the years of experience, high integrity and a long-term commitment of serving the public,” Worthy said in a press release.

Torres, who retired from the circuit court’s criminal division in 2010, also is a former 36th District Court judge. Torres, who had been in private practice, will be responsible for the investigation of allegations of internal fraud and corruption in Wayne County. The position is part time.

Crawford will succeed Richard Hathaway as chief assistant to Worthy. He has served as the prosecutor office’s chief of legislation, grants and community relations.

Guerriero was appointed magistrate in Dearborn’s 19th District Court in 1993 where he served for 10 years until he was appointed to the 24th District Court in Allen Park in 2003. Guerriero returned to private practice in 2005 as a senior trial attorney.
