DOJ Drops Rob Handy Case

SALEM, Ore. — The Oregon Department of Justice says there’s not enough evidence to charge Lane County Commissioner Rob Handy with a crime.

Investigators looked at allegations that Handy sent out letters, asking for a donation to help him pay for a settlement in a county lawsuit.

Announcing the decision not to file charges against Handy, an assistant attorney general wrote, “While his conduct may have violated personnel policies and ethics rules, it does not meet the criteria for criminal prosecution.”

The Secretary of State is looking into whether Handy violated any election laws.
