Deschutes County District Attorney Patrick Flaherty says former Sheriff Les Stiles will be leaving his Department by May first. Stiles joined the Department after the election on a part time basis to help develop policies and procedures for the investigative staff and to evaluate information technologies in the office.
Stiles has finished these projects. D.A. Flaherty had hoped to offer stiles a half time D.A. investigators’ position, but budgetary constrains prevent that.
