The Oregon Department of Administrative Services said Monday that Sharon Sweet got $310,000. Flaherty fired Sweet in October 2011, saying the investigator's work was not "consistently above expectations" and she violated personnel rules by not disclosing her involvement in a romantic relationship with another investigator. The Bend Bulletin reports that since 2005 the department has paid about $1.7 million in claims on employment-related lawsuits filed against all Oregon district attorneys.
