AG Adjusting to New Role

The move from the judicial bench in Douglas County to the Attorney General's office in Topeka has been a smooth one. That word from AG Stephen Six Tuesday.

Six appeared on 13 News at 4 to talk about his new job. He says he hopes he's restored stability to the office since taking over for Paul Morrison. Morrison resigned after admitting to having an affair with a woman who worked with him when he was Johnson County District Attorney.

Six says the AG's office has a good staff and changes have been minimal. He takes over the midst of the legislative session, which he says is allowing him to get right to work on his priorities. He's asked for more funding to focus on internet crime. He says the Federal Trade Commission lists it as the fastest-growing area of crime, and Six says it's one that often targets the most vulnerable citizens - senior citizens through scams and children through sexual predators. Six says he's also keeping an eye on immigration legislation making its way through the Statehouse and whether it will put any additional duties in his office.

Asked about plans to seek election to the office once he serves the three years remaining on Morrison's terms, Six says he understands people are interested in getting an answer, but he says that's a decision to be made down the road.
