State Attorney To Step Down
Third Circuit State Attorney Skip Jarvis is stepping down.
Jarvis faced a grand jury investigation into claims from a former employee that he used confidential law enforcement records to gather information about political opponents.
In a media release, Jarvis said he made a deal to withdraw and "all issues scheduled to be presented to the leon county grand jury will go away." This deal was confirmed by Prosecutor Brad King.
Jarvis, who was elected in 2008, worked more than 20 years as an Assistant State Prosecutor. He will stay in office until the end of this term.
He had faced an election challenge from Republican Jeff Siegmeister of Lake City.
