Acting Jefferson County D.A. resigns
Acting Jefferson County district attorney Tom Rugg has announced his resignation effective immediately.
Rugg became acting DA after Tom Maness resigned as district attorney at the end of last year and announced he would not be running for re-election.
Rugg was the first assistant DA in the civil division.
In a statement today, Rugg said in part, "I hope that my service has been more beneficial to those I have served than it has been to me and mine."
Rugg went on to say, "I am not retiring from my labor and hope to return to public service in the not-so-distant future."
