Cassilly confirmed Tuesday afternoon that he rescinded the letter of resignation he wrote in October and will serve out the remainder of his ninth term which will end in late 2018.

The resignation, which the 65-year-old chief prosecutor had characterized as his retirement, was to take effect Jan. 1.

“I felt like there are too many things left undone and I needed to stay in there, hang in there and do them,” Cassilly said. “When I got down to it, two more years isn’t that far away.”

He said he hopes to able to work with the incoming administration, the new U.S. Attorney General, through the National District Attorneys Association to improve state and local prosecutor relationships within state government.
