West Linn Officials Admit Failings In Doctor Abuse Investigation


(West Linn, OR) -- West Linn city officials admit they should have done better in their handling of patient sex abuse accusations against a former local doctor. Former patients of Dr. David Farley say West Linn Police and the Clackamas County D-A's office failed them, by not getting a criminal indictment against Farley. Results of an independent review presented to city council Tuesday night conclude that Detective Tony Christensen was not properly trained to investigate the allegations. Officials say officers will now have specialized trauma-informed training and a detective will be added for oversight. The Oregon Medical Board revoked Farley's license, and a change in state law makes it easier to prosecute doctors for abuse in the office.
