Oregon Attorney General John Kroger today announced the resignation of Brent Foster, Special Counsel to the Attorney General on environmental issues. Foster resigned today after he informed the Attorney General’s office that he misrepresented his involvement in the investigation of a criminal case, State v. Ryan/Hood River Juice. Attorney General Kroger has referred the matter to Marion County District Attorney Walt Beglau for any necessary investigation.
“It is crucial that all members of the Department of Justice maintain the highest professional standards,” said Attorney General Kroger.
Attorney General John Kroger leads the Oregon Department of Justice. The Department’s mission is to fight crime and fraud, protect the environment, improve child welfare, promote a positive business climate, and defend the rights of all Oregonians.
