J. Patricia Wilson Smoot, who for eight years served as deputy state's attorney in Prince George's County, has been sworn in as a member of the United States Parole Commission.

Smoot officially left her Prince George's post on Monday, when she was sworn in by U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Sr.

As deputy to State's Attorney Glenn F. Ivey, Smoot was in charge of the sex offense, child abuse and domestic violence units. She also supervised assistant state's attorneys in the juvenile division and those who prosecuted cases in District Court.\

Before joining the Prince George's State's Attorney's office, Smoot worked from 1994 to 2002 as an assistant U.S. Attorney in the District.

She has also worked in the public defender's office in Prince George's and for a private law firm.
