EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — The Marion County District Attorney's Office says it will not file criminal charges against former Lane County Administrator Liane Richardson.

Deputy District Attorney Paige Clarkson said Monday the decision was partly due to a settlement finalized last week that prevents Richardson from suing the county over her termination.

The Register-Guard (http://bit.ly/18njC3D ) says the county also cannot sue Richardson under the settlement.

Richardson was fired Aug. 6 after an investigation into how she converted unused vacation and sick leave and deferred compensation into immediate pay.

Richardson's attorney Mike Arnold says the matter should be handled as a civil dispute.
