County Attorney Takes Full Pay During Leave
DES MOINES, IA (CBS2/FOX28) - The Des Moines County Attorney continues to take his full pay two months after he began medical leave.
County Supervisors say they have not heard from county attorney Pat Jackson since he began his leave in April.
He went on leave four days after it was reported that his office prosecuted fewer cases than neighboring counties despite having a bigger staff and budget.
However, the County Auditor took a look and found that nothing was being done that was illegal.
Since his leave, the County Attorney has been paid more than $8,000 a month.
