Charges dropped against Commissioner Hare
Charges of filing a false police report have been entirely dropped against County Commissioner Simon Hare.

Josephine County District Attorney Stephen Campbell said today that due to a conflict of interest he placed the situation into the hands of the Department of Justice who declared there is insufficient evidence to charge Hare with a crime and the case has been closed.

Hare called authorities in early May of this year to report his jeep had been stolen from the G Street downtown area and it was alleged that Hare had used the report to hide a drunk driving allegation.
