HENNEPIN, Ill. (AP) – Putnam County has a new top prosecutor.

Hennepin attorney Christina Mennie is the new Putnam County state’s attorney. She’s the first woman state’s attorney in the county.

The Putnam County Board unanimously approved her selection at a special meeting on Saturday. She succeeds Jim Mack who was prosecutor for a decade before he was elected county judge in the Nov. 4 election.

Mennie’s appointment runs through the 2016 election.
