A complaint against the only elected county DCD director in the nation had alleged that Roark Miller was using her office for “special privileges,” and later grew into her admitted backdating of a building permit so the applicant would not be subject to new Dungeness-area water rules.
“I do not find that any of Ms. Miller's actions warrant criminal charges,” state Assistant Attorney General Scott Marlow said.
A report by the firm Bullard Law, which represents the county Human Resources Department, had recommended consideration of seven criminal charges: injury to a public record, injury to and misappropriation of a record, offering a false instrument for filing or record and misappropriation and falsification of accounts by a public officer, all felonies; and official misconduct, false report and public officer making false certificates, a gross misdemeanor.
