News Release
Press Release from West Linn Police Acting Chief Mahuna regarding CCDA investigation - 05/29/20

Today I received the report from the Clackamas County District Attorney regarding the West Linn Police Department’s Investigation of Michael Fesser.  First of all, I am thankful for the work the investigators put into this extremely thorough independent investigation.   

The report found Sergeant Reeves and Retired Chief Timeus engaged in serious misconduct during the Fesser investigation.   As a result, both Sergeant Reeves and Retired Chief Timeus will not be called as witnesses to testify by the CCDA.  The results of that decision are very impactful to the community.  The CCDA is currently reviewing 40 active criminal cases where Sergeant Reeves was a witness.  Any case that cannot move forward without his testimony will be dismissed.  CCDA will also review approximately 500 adjudicated cases involving Sergeant Reeves.

At the moment, Sergeant Reeves remains on Administrative Leave.   As a public employee, Sergeant Reeves has rights to due process which The City of West Linn and the Police Department intend to strictly follow.

I firmly believe the West Linn Police Department will become a better and more professional police department as a result of this investigation and the others still underway.   We have a long way to go in earning back the confidence and public trust we’ve lost.
