Richardson was fired from Lane County last week for converting her paid vacation, sick leave and deferred compensation to immediate payments. When an employee had questioned the matter, it was discovered she’d exceeded the maximum amount for the year. That’s when Richardson took voluntary leave. The county made its decision to terminate Richardson after an investigation was completed.
Marion County Deputy District Attorney Paige Clarkson confirms her office is currently reviewing the case.
The Lane County District Attorney turned the information over to the Marion County DA’s office, where the Marion County DA will in turn make a charging decision.
