PRINEVILLE, Ore. (AP) - A state investigation found no substantial evidence that the Crook County District Attorney’s Office engaged in unlawful employment practices.

The Bend Bulletin reports (https://is.gd/HU53Tq ) that the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries checked out a November complaint filed by Traci Peterson, a former employee of the district attorney’s office.

Peterson alleged that District Attorney Daina Vitolins retaliated against her after she asked to use flex time for mandatory lunch meetings.

Labor Bureau spokesman Charlie Burr said this week that the investigation was closed due to a lack of evidence.

Peterson declined comment when contacted by The Bulletin.

The DA said she can’t talk about personnel matters.
