Dallas County DA extends leave of absence

🕐 1 min read

DALLAS (AP) — Dallas County District Attorney Susan Hawk, who has been off work for nearly two months for what she says is depression treatment, is extending the absence by two weeks.

The Dallas Morning News ( ) reports that Hawk sent an email to her staff Monday saying she’ll return to work Oct. 2. She says in the email that she’s healthy and has “a plan to stay that way.”

Hawk, who took office in January, has been away from work since late July. She said in a statement Aug. 25 that she was suffering from depression and would take an additional four weeks of leave. Based on that timeline, she was expected to return Tuesday.

Hawk previously acknowledged getting a doctor’s help in weaning herself from medication for back pain in 2013.
