APNewsBreak: US Attorney Recuses Himself From Case

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - The top federal prosecutor in Delaware has recused himself from the case of a man convicted of kidnapping his children because he once spoke on behalf of the man's family.
    
While still a lawyer in private practice, U.S. Attorney Charles Oberly III wrote a letter urging the state Division of Family Services to take seriously David Matusiewicz's allegations that his ex-wife was abusing their three daughters.
    
Matusiewicz has been out on federal probation after serving time on a conviction of kidnapping the daughters and taking them to Central America.
    
The U.S. Attorney's Office wants to revoke the probation, partly because Matusiewicz allegedly didn't pay child support.
    
Oberly wrote the letter in 2009 on behalf of Matusiewicz's father, Thomas Matusiewicz, who on Feb. 11 fatally shot the wife before killing himself.
