The Oregon State Bar says an article on the front page of the Bend Bulletin gives the wrong impression of a current investigation involving Deschutes County District Attorney Patrick Flaherty. It leads people to believe that the State Bar has made some conclusions, but the bar says its still way too early for that. “That is not a correct headline. We have not made any conclusions. We are just above beginning of our Disciplinary Council’s Investigation.” Katery Walsh with the Oregon State Bar says other statements about the investigation made in the article are also misleading. She says they are just starting to look into the case, and any conclusions are pre-mature, at best. “We are just above beginning of our disciplinary councils Office. The file first went through an initial screening process, and we did find, during that screening process, that there was enough evidence to forward it to Disciplinary Council’s Office. But Disciplinary Council’s Office has only just the investigation.” She believes the investigation will take at least several more weeks. When it's concluded if they have a case against Patrick Flaherty they would then take it to a State Board that acts like a grand jury. Deschutes County District Attorney Patrick Flaherty says he will not comment on an on-going investigation.
