Idaho’s Attorney General Lawrence Wasden's office announced the resignation of spokesperson Todd Dvorak Wednesday.

Dvorak’s abrupt departure comes after he was cited with two drug-related misdemeanor charges in Nez Perce County. Last Friday Dvorak was charged with marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia by a Lewiston police officer. He pled innocent to both charges.

Dvorak had been Attorney General Lawrence Wasden’s spokesperson since January 2014. Before that, he had a 20-year career as a journalist. He led the Associated Press office in Boise before taking the job with the attorney general.
