TRENTON— Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal announced that he has appointed Christine A. Hoffman to serve as Acting Gloucester County Prosecutor, replacing Charles A. Fiore, who resigned as Prosecutor effective noon today. Acting Prosecutor Hoffman has spent the last 22 years as a career prosecutor, most recently serving as a Deputy Director of the Division of Criminal Justice (DCJ).
