RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – The director of Virginia's Executive Mansion is leaving for a job at the Richmond city jail.
    
Sarah Scarbrough has held the role for several years and has managed the historic home during Gov. Bob McDonnell's term.
    
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/1bTJ3zG) that the 30-year-old Scarbrough is leaving the mansion Aug. 16 and begins at the jail in September.
    
At the jail, she'll serve as director of programs, overseeing nearly 100 programs on prisoner re-entry and recidivism.
    
Scarbrough told the newspaper that the gifts scandal involving the McDonnell family was not the reason for her leaving. But she said the job was “high stress.”
    
Scarbrough earned a doctorate degree in public policy and administration with a concentration in criminal justice in May 2012 from Virginia Commonwealth University.
