Hugh Hurwitz had been acting director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons since May of 2018.

Under his watch, accused sex-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his prison cell.

Barr will name Kathleen Hawk Sawyer as the new director.

Hawk Sawyer previously served as the director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
