Dean Gushwa has resigned as Umatilla County district attorney as part of a deal with the state.
Also part of the deal, Circuit Court Judge Gregory Baxter of Baker County found Gushwa guilty of a new official misconduct charge and barred him from holding public office for three years.
His resignation is effective May 31.
In exchange, the Oregon Department of Justice dropped all but one criminal charge against Gushwa.
Never miss a local story.
The deal concludes a case that began in August 2010 and led the justice department to charge Gushwa with seven counts of first-degree official misconduct, a misdemeanor in Oregon.
The state claimed Gushwa intimidated and threatened two women assistants in the district attorney's office into having sexual relations with him. The justice department later charged Gushwa with 11 counts of contempt of court.
On Wednesday, the state dismissed all of those charges and Gushwa handed over his resignation.
Also part of the deal, the state brought a new official misconduct charge. After a hearing in which both sides agreed to all the facts, Judge Baxter found Gushwa guilty of receiving a $6 discount as a government employee when he paid for a La Grande hotel room on or near Aug. 1, 2009, so he could have sexual relations with another person.
The state argued the discount amounted to Gushwa receiving a benefit when he wasn't acting in any official capacity. Will Perkinson, Gushwa's attorney, argued the discount was no different than any other Gushwa might have received, such as being a member of AARP or any other group.
Baxter sided with the state, finding Gushwa received the benefit of $6 off because he was the district attorney.
The state and defense already had hammered out a sentence no matter what the judge found. So Baxter agreed to their deal -- three years of court probation for Gushwa but without a conviction. Oregon law allows for probation without entering a judgment of guilt.
Gushwa also can't seek or run for public office for the next three years, and he agreed not to contact either of the victims in the misconduct case.
At the close of the hearing, Gushwa offered this:
"I want to apologize to the state of Oregon and to the people of Umatilla County for my conduct."
