August 23, 2019 GMT

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Minnehaha County’s top prosecutor is confirming that he is on leave for several medical issues.

Aaron McGowan told the Sioux Falls Argus Leader that he’s in daily contact with top deputies and staff and continues to fulfill his responsibilities. He said he would return as soon as possible, but didn’t tell the newspaper what his issues were or when he would return.

The Argus Leader first reported on McGowan’s absence Thursday, saying he had been out since at least mid-July.

The 45-year-old McGowan was first elected in 2008. Minnehaha is South Dakota’s most populous county.
