    MAQUOKETA, Iowa (AP) - The Jackson County attorney says he'll resign to go into a private practice.

    The Quad-City Times reports Chris Raker made his announcement Tuesday at a Jackson County Supervisors meeting.

    Raker was appointed county attorney in 2008 and had been an assistant county attorney for a year before his appointment.

    The 35-year-old Raker says he'll resign on Sept. 1 and go into a private practice with Maquoketa attorney Ken Wright.

    The board can either schedule a special election or appoint a replacement.

    Board members didn't take action Tuesday but plan to meet next week to discuss the situation.
