A contentious issue involving the Deschutes County District Attorney appears to have ended. D.A. Patrick Flaherty had taken a case to the Grand Jury over concerns that employment applications regarding new hires at the District Attorney's Office was released to the news media.   As part of the agreement, County Counsel Mark Pilliod admits that much of the information should not have been released: “I am gratified that Mr. Pilliod, the County Counsel has accepted responsibility for his actions so that this matter can be put behind us. The District Attorney's Office is looking forward to working cooperatively with the County Counsel's Office in the future. I am confident that we will forge a very strong relationship with County Counsel.” In a letter released to KBND News, Pilliod states he understands the District Attorney's decision to investigate the matter and that he appreciates the D.A.'s decision not to further prosecute. The letter goes on to state Pilliod is looking forward to a much better working relationship with the District Attorney's office in the future.
