The only thing that Assistant Renville County Attorney Glen Jacobsen could salvage from his office in Oakdale after a fire set by a man he was prosecuting was a scorched gavel. Recent incidents in Cook and Blue Earth counties have put the issue of security for prosecutors on the agenda in some area counties too. Tribune photo by Tom Cherveny

OLIVIA -- Glen Jacobsen was early in his law career and serving as a prosecutor for a number of suburban communities in the metro area.

The building holding their offices in Oakdale was on fire, she told him, and it was arson.

One of the fires had been started on his desk.
