GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - Don Davis is retiring after 40 years as a federal prosecutor in western Michigan.

Davis is a well-known lawyer in Grand Rapids. He's spent his career at the U.S. Attorney's Office there and served as head of the office for four years before President Barack Obama finally got a nominee approved by the U.S. Senate in 2012.

MLive.com says Davis disclosed his retirement in a letter to colleagues Friday.
