MADISON - Green Lake County has a new top prosecutor.

Gov. Scott Walker has appointed Andrew Christensen as the county's new district attorney. Christensen comes from Fond du Lac County, where he has worked in the district attorney's office since 2008.

"Andrew Christenson is highly respected by his peers, the defense bar, and law enforcement," Walker said in a news release. "He has already proven himself as a prosecutor; he will make a superb district attorney."

Christensen replaces Kyle Sargent, who stepped down in June.
