SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Gov. Gary Herbert has appointed a former prosecutor as chairwoman of the Utah Board of Pardons and Parole.

Angela Micklos will replace Clark Harms as head of the board responsible for deciding the length of prison terms, termination of sentences, commutations and pardons.

Micklos, who had been serving as vice chairwoman, was appointed by Herbert to the parole board in October 2009.

She spent more than a decade as a Salt Lake County deputy district attorney and also served as an assistant attorney general for six years.

Micklos, in a statement, pledged efforts to meet Herbert’s directive to improve the criminal justice system and to reduce recidivism.
