      County attorney requests indefinite medical leave

      Des Moines County Attorney Patrick Jackson is taking an indefinite, paid medical leave of absence.

      The Burlington Hawk Eye reports that assistant county attorney Amy Beavers has been named as acting county attorney while Jackson remains on medical leave.

      County officials declined to reveal details surrounding Jackson's leave, citing federal medical privacy laws.

      Jackson hung up when contacted by a Hawk Eye reporter Friday. He could not be reached Saturday by The Associated Press.
