The Idaho State Police investigation into the conduct of former Sen. John McGee, R-Caldwell, has been referred to Ada County Prosecuting Attorney Greg Bower.
“We’re in the process of screening to decide what charges to make, if any,” said Chief Deputy Prosecutor Roger Bourne said Monday. “We’ve asked for some follow-up work to be done.”
Bourne said prosecutors hope to make a decision on the case by week’s end.
ISP Capt. Steve Richardson said the ISP investigation was turned over to prosecutors on April 13, about seven weeks after McGee’s Feb. 22 resignation from the Senate amidst sexual harassment charges brought by a woman Senate staff member.
Richardson said ISP was still conducting "some peripheral follow-up," but that he couldn’t comment on whether ISP had made a recommendation to prosecutors. Bourne said he couldn’t comment further.
The follow-up work apparently included interviews by two Boise-area detectives who were in Eastern Idaho last week interviewing Senate President Pro Tem Brent Hill, R-Rexburg, and Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis, R-Idaho Falls.
Hill and Davis said they were interviewed last week.
“They said they were just collecting the evidence,” Hill said Monday. “They didn’t indicate what they thought would happen.”
McGee did not immediately reply to a request for comment late Monday afternoon.
