Jersey Solicitor General Howard Sharp QC to resign

Jersey's Solicitor General is to resign to go into private practice after five years in the role.

Howard Sharp QC was appointed in March 2010 and continued to act as crown prosecutor for criminal cases.

He will step down next July after five years advising the States of Jersey on legal matters.

He said it had been an honour to serve as the island's Solicitor General, but wanted a new challenge.

Mr Sharp has acted as prosecutor in a number of high profile cases, including that of drugs baron Curtis Warren and Damian Rzeszowski, who killed his wife and children.
