Several investigations surrounding Deschutes County District Attorney Patrick Flaherty continue. He's under investigation for misconduct by the Oregon State Bar and the Oregon State Police. Deschutes County Commissioner Tammy Baney admits the last year has been a tumultuous one, but thinks the office is functioning well regardless. “Right now, I don't see where that is causing a bottleneck. But on our side, there is hope for a resolution to the myriad of issues facing the District Attorney. But right now, the office is function quite well.” Investigators hope to decide in the next couple of weeks whether to proceed with a criminal case of misconduct against Flaherty.
