NBC New York has confirmed that State Attorney General Paula Dow plans to resign by the end of the year.

A high-level law-enforcement source tells NBC New York that she is expected to resign in coming weeks.

NJ.com reported that State Sen. Ronald Rice said Thursday he had asked Dow whether she was stepping down.

"She said yeah," Rice said.

Dow has reportedly expressed interest in becoming a judge.

A possible replacement is Jeff Chiesa, Gov. Chris Christie's chief counsel, NJ.com said.

Dow started in her post on Jan. 19, 2010, and is New Jersey's 58th attorney general. She was previously Essex County prosecutor, and before that, worked with the U.S. attorney's office.
