Dvorak leaves Attorney General’s office, pleads innocent to marijuana possession charge

The Idaho Attorney General’s office has announced that its constituent information and communications director, Todd Dvorak, is no longer with the office. “Out of respect for Todd’s privacy, we’re referring all questions to Todd,” said Deputy Attorney General Brian Kane. According to the Idaho court records repository, Dvorak was cited with two misdemeanor charges on Friday in Nez Perce County: Marijuana possession, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Dvorak has retained an attorney and pleaded innocent to both charges. He couldn’t be reached for comment. He has been with the Attorney General’s office since January of 2014; prior to joining the office, Dvorak had a 13-year career with the Associated Press and headed its Boise bureau.

Lewiston Tribune reporter Ralph Bartholdt has a full report here; he reports that police found a small package of marijuana from a Spokane retailer in luggage belonging to Dvorak at the Lewiston airport.
