Assistant U.S. Attorney Humble Retires

Assistant U.S. Attorney Gary Humble retired this week after 30 years in the U.S. Attorney's office in Chattanooga. During his career, Humble prosecuted several high-profile cases including the 2008 trial of former Hamilton County Sheriff Billy Long on drug conspiracy, firearms, money laundering and extortion charges; a case involving professors at the University of Tennessee Space Institute in Tullahoma who were convicted of helping students cheat on their graduate theses; and the 1987 case against U.S. Rep. Harold Ford Sr., who was accused of conspiracy, bank and mail fraud. The Chattanooga Times Free Press has more on Humble's career and plans for the future.
