The CNMI Office of the Attorney General welcomes two new staff to its team.
Barbara P. Cepeda hails from the island of Guam where she worked with the Office of the Attorney General of Guam for 15 years. During her tenure at the Guam OAG, she worked as a prosecutor for five years before becoming the deputy attorney general for the Child Support Enforcement Division. Immediately following her services with OAG of Guam, she was appointed legal counsel for the Lt. Governor of Guam. Cepeda brings with her a wealth of knowledge as she joins the OAG’s Criminal Division as assistant attorney general and commits to serving the CNMI.
The other addition to the team is Carla Torres, a grants management specialist. A native of Saipan, Torres returns home to serve the CNMI after pursuing her education in California. With the challenges of sequestration, she commits to tapping all available funding sources to enhance the services of the OAG to better serve the community and the CNMI overall.
“I am thrilled to be part of the OAG team," said Torres. "With a tough economy, I am committed to the challenges ahead, at the same time I remain optimistic to see a brighter CNMI in years to come.” (Office of the Governor)
