Walworth County Assistant District Attorney Dennis Krueger, a prosecutor here since 2003, has resigned to become an assistant attorney general under Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen.

Krueger submitted his resignation earlier this month and would not immediately disclose his reason for leaving.

His last day official day is July 7, but Krueger is using remaining vacation and will likely not return to his office. He'll start in Madison on July 9.

"It's a better career opportunity," Krueger said. "I've been thinking about it for a while, and at this point it makes sense to do it."

Krueger will be assigned to the criminal litigation unit and will prosecute any kind of crime.

He will also handle cases that involve the potential release of convicted sex offenders into the community.

"I'm glad to have the opportunity to work for the attorney general," Krueger said. "I think he is doing a good job, and I hope I can help the office."

Krueger started in Walworth County in September 2003, handling primarily drug cases, sexual assaults and white-collar crime.
