BELLE FOURCHE, S.D. (AP) - The state’s attorney in Butte County has resigned, after being suspended by the governor and later pleading guilty to marijuana-related charges.

The Black Hills Pioneer reports (https://bit.ly/1S5TQLt ) that 31-year-old Heather Plunkett submitted her resignation Wednesday.

Plunkett and her husband were arrested Dec. 4 when the state Division of Criminal Investigation served a search warrant at their Belle Fourche (foosh) home.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard suspended Heather Plunkett with pay four days later. She pleaded guilty to three misdemeanor charges on Dec. 24 and is to be sentenced Feb. 5.
