It's a sign that tensions may be lessening in the transition between outgoing Deschutes District Attorney Mike Dugan and incoming DA Patrick Flaherty. Both men met Wednesday and Dugan asked Flaherty to be the special prosecutor in the Steven Blaylock murder investigation. "The Blaylock murder investigation is still in its infancy stages, so to speak. That case will be pending when Mr. Flaherty takes office in January. It seemed to me that it would be advantageous to, not only Mr. Flaherty, but this office to have him involved from the start. So I asked him if he's like to do that and he agreed." Dugan says they will work together to make a smooth transition and have planned some staff meetings next week to discuss the transition. Dugan says both men agreed that their primary mission of the DA's Office is community safety and assuring the public that those people that commit crimes are held accountable.
