ASTORIA, Ore. (AP) - A Clatsop County deputy district attorney is moving across the state to become the district attorney in Malheur County.

Gov. Kate Brown appointed David Goldthorpe to the post Friday. He replaces Dan Norris, who resigned to become the state’s first elder abuse prosecutor.

The Daily Astorian reports (https://is.gd/SebnEu) that Goldthorpe has been a prosecutor on the North Coast for about seven years. He ran unsuccessfully for Circuit Court judge earlier this year.

Norris was the Malheur County DA for 16 years. He was perhaps best known for helping to investigate the fatal shooting by police of Robert “LaVoy” Finicum, a leader of the group that occupied the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge last winter.
