Updated on

The leading candidate to take over U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s old post as Brooklyn’s top federal prosecutor is a veteran of the office who spent more than a decade handling narcotics, murder and corruption cases.

Robert Capers, a senior assistant in Brooklyn’s public integrity section, was recommended by Senator Charles Schumer as a nominee to lead the Eastern District of New York, which includes parts of New York City and Long Island.
