Chris Lebeck is slated to start in February as a senior prosecutor in the special victim's unit of the Greene County prosecuting attorney's office, according to a news release.
It's a return to the Greene County prosecuting attorney's office for Lebeck, who served a stint there 2005-07, according to his LinkedIn profile.
