U.S. Attorney Rodger Heaton of Springfield, Ill., who has been a federal prosecutor since 1991, stepped down Monday, the Associated Press reported.

His assistant Jeffrey Lang takes over as the acting U.S. Attorney.

The wire service said Heaton planned to practice law in the private sector.

Heaton had been U.S. Attorney since 2005. Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin has recommended that the post be filled either by attorneys Gregory Harris or James Lewis.
