WHITEHALL, WI (WXOW)-- The Trempealeau County District Attorney has resigned citing medical reasons.
Jeri Marsolek submitted her resignation to Governor Scott Walker's office, effective October 1, 2012.
Attorney Taavi McMahon has been appointed Special Prosecutor and will cover Marsolek's cases through the end of the year. McMahon has served as Special Prosecutor since Marsolek went on unpaid medical leave in June.
In a press release, Marsolek said, ""I've enjoyed working for the people of Trempealeau County. I am proud of the achievements made during my time in office, including the construction of a witness interview room in the courthouse for children, securing a Diversion Agreement Coordinator paid for with Federal funds, eliminating the criminal case backlog by instituting a bond system for arrested offenders, and securing a full time District Attorney for Trempealeau County. I will miss working with my friends at the courthouse, and wish them well. My hope is that once my health is in order, I will again be able to serve the people of Trempealeau County."
McMahon is also the only candidate for Trempealeau County District Attorney on the November ballot. The elected district attorney will take office January 1, 2013.
