Former Umatilla County District Attorney Dean Gushwa has been charged with 5 misdemeanor counts of official misconduct in connection with allegations of a former employee that he used his position to obtain sexual gratification and then cover it up.

The employee claims that Gushwa subjected her to physical, sexual and emotional abuse between December 2008 and April 2010. Gushwa took a leave of absence from his position in August after a local newspaper reported the story.

The former employee has notified the county and the State of Oregon to expect a lawsuit based on the claim that they failed to protect her from the alleged abuse. The Oregon Department of Justice will be handing the criminal case against Gushwa.
