Canyon County prosecutor still working off debts



NAMPA, Idaho (AP) _ Canyon County Prosecutor John Bujak says
he's still digging himself out of the debt he incurred after
leaving the private sector to take public office two years ago.

Bujak left his lucrative job at a Nampa practice in 2008, when
he unseated four-term county prosecutor Dave Young.

A few months after Bujak took on the lower-paying position, with
its annual base salary of $101,608, his sprawling home in
southwestern Idaho went into foreclosure.

Bujak told the Idaho Press-Tribune an agreement has been reached
to pay off creditors and although he is still behind on house
payments, he is working himself ``out of the mess.''

Bujak and his wife also face two new civil cases involving
vehicle and credit card debts.
