CARRINGTON, N.D. (AP) - The man who resigned as Foster County’s state’s attorney earlier this year plans to seek election to the position again.

Paul Murphy stepped down in January. The County Commission said he was asked to resign because of bad legal advice, but Murphy said he quit due to a number of professional and personal reasons.

Murphy tells KQDJ radio that numerous people in the community have told him they want him back in the state’s attorney’s office. He says he wants to be a leader in the community.

Murphy was first elected state’s attorney in 2002 and was re-elected several times before he resigned.
