LEE COUNTY, Ia. (WGEM) -

A southeast Iowa prosecutor says it could take months before any charges, if at all, are filed in the Midwest Academy sex abuse case.

The Iowa Attorney General's office says they are stepping in to help Lee County Attorney Michael Short because of the complexity of the case and the limited resources in Short's office.

Authorities raided the academy's Keokuk campus and another facility in Montrose last month following claims of sexual abuse between a staff member and former student.
