FARGO -- Christopher Myers is set to be the U.S. attorney for North Dakota.

Myers, whose appointment was approved Saturday by U.S. District Court Chief Judge Ralph Erickson, will serve as U.S. attorney until President Barack Obama nominates a replacement and the U.S. Senate confirms the nominee, according to a news release.

Myers had worked with the U.S. Attorney's Office for nearly 14 years before becoming the acting U.S. attorney in March.

Violent crime, especially against children, will "remain a priority" for the office, Myers said in a the release.

"Rest assured, we will retain the quality of life we enjoy in North Dakota," he said. "Criminal organizations will find North Dakota a particularly unfavorable place to do business."
