Delaware's US Attorney Oberly says He Learned of His Ouster from Friend

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Delaware's outgoing U.S. attorney says he learned about his departure from a friend, who heard about it on the news.
    
Charles Oberly is one of 46 U.S. attorneys appointed by President Barack Obama asked to submit their resignations Friday by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
    
Oberly told The News Journal in Wilmington Saturday that he learned of the decision from a friend who called to offer condolences.
    
The 70-year-old Oberly served as U.S. attorney since 2010. He knew as a political appointee he would eventually be asked to resign, but thought he might be able to serve until a successor was chosen
    
Bart Dalton, a Wilmington attorney who once served under Oberly, inadvertently broke the news to Oberly. He said the Trump administration should have done a better job notifying Oberly.

    Nearly Half of July's Overdoses Were in Sussex County

    The opioid epidemic continues to ravage the nation, including here in Sussex County where nearly half of the deaths from drug overdoses this month are from Delaware's southern-most county. 

    The recent spike has prompted a state warning specifically targeted at heroin users. According to the release, the uptick may be the result of heroin being laced with fentanyl, a synthetic opioid much more powerful than most drugs.
