WASHINGTON — The acting director of the Bureau of Prisons was reassigned on Monday, Attorney General William P. Barr announced, the latest fallout over the suicide of the financier Jeffrey Epstein at a chronically understaffed federal jail.

Mr. Barr has said he was “appalled” by Mr. Epstein’s death on Aug. 10 at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, where Mr. Epstein was being held on federal sex trafficking charges after years of being dogged by accusations of sexually abusing girls.

Mr. Barr announced that the bureau’s acting director, Hugh Hurwitz, was being reassigned to run its re-entry services division. Mr. Barr named Kathleen Hawk Sawyer, who ran the prisons bureau from 1992 to 2003, to replace him. Mr. Barr and Ms. Sawyer have a history working together: He also named her to the post in 1992 during his own first stint as attorney general in 1992.
