BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - A one-time chairman of Alabama’s Democratic Party who also served as the chief federal prosecutor in Montgomery has died.

Law partner Ken Riley says Redding Pitt died Sunday. He was 71.

The cause of death wasn’t immediately released Monday.

Pitt was a Decatur native who served as chairman of the state Democratic Party from 2001 to 2005 after working as U.S. attorney in Montgomery for seven years beginning in 1994. President Bill Clinton appointed him to the federal position.

Party chairwoman Nancy Worley says Pitt was currently serving as a vice chairman of the state organization.

Pitt has been with the Birmingham-based law firm of Farris, Riley and Pitt since 2001.
