A group of freshly minted federal prosecutors tapped by U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag for the Northern District of California began their new jobs on Monday.

Among the eight hires — and those getting new titles — are John Hemann, an ex-Enron prosecutor who as anticipated will handle public corruption cases, and Hallie Mitchell, who previously worked with the office on a high-profile public corruption case when she was a trial attorney with Main Justice’s special racketeering section.
