DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — U.S. Attorney Marc Krickbaum of the Southern District of Iowa announced his resignation from the office Thursday.

Krickbaum did not give a reason for the resignation.

President Donald Trump appointed him to the job in 2017. Before his appointment, Krickbaum worked for almost a decade as a career prosecutor in Chicago and Des Moines. The federal prosecutor’s office for the Southern District hold courts in Davenport, Des Moines and Council Bluffs.

No replacement or interim U.S. Attorney was named.

“Serving as United States Attorney has been the privilege of my professional life,” Krickbaum said in the release. “I am grateful to the law enforcement and agencies we serve with, and to the people of the U.S. Attorney’s Office. They have done great things, and they have many more to come.”
