Croninger appointed Monroe County District Attorney

“Kevin Croninger is a rising star among Wisconsin’s prosecutors,” said Governor Walker in a news release.  “He has led with strength and wisdom in a difficult moment, and I’m confident he will carry forward Dan Cary’s legacy as a prosecutor who is committed to enforcing the law and the serving the community.”

MADISON, Wis. (WEAU) -- A man the governor calls a "rising star among Wisconsin prosecutors" will succeed a district attorney who died last year.

On Tuesday, Governor Scott Walker appointed Monroe County Assistant District Attorney Kevin Croninger to serve as the new District Attorney. Croninger, of Sparta, was sworn in Wednesday night. He started his legal career as an assistant district attorney in Juneau County. He joined the Monroe County District Attorney’s Office in April 2011. Croninger graduated from the University of Wisconsin and Marquette University Law School.

The previous Monroe County District Attorney, Dan Cary, died unexpectedly at his home in Sparta in November 2013. He was 58.
