Deputy prosecutor announces intent to resign

WYNNE, AR (KAIT) -

The deputy prosecutor for Cross County announced his intentions to resign on Monday, September 8, according to 1st Judicial Prosecuting Attorney Fletcher Long.

Long told Region 8 News that Michael Ladd told him “the pressures from the job were excessive.” Ladd will resign Monday as deputy prosecutor.

Ladd, who was also the lawyer for the Cross County Quorum Court, will no longer represent the county, according to Judge Jack Caubble. Caubble told Region 8 News that the quorum court will likely approve the next appointed deputy prosecutor selected by Long.
