Investigation finds local DA gave staffer cash, gifts and sexual innuendo

PAULDING COUNTY, Ga. - The Georgia Bureau of Investigation confirms it has opened an investigation into a local district attorney accused of sexually harassing a senior member of his staff.

Channel 2 investigative reporter Aaron Diamant spent the last two weeks collecting all the pieces for this story.

Paulding County District Attorney Dick Donovan's state-appointed lawyer told Diamant they both intend to vigorously defend the allegations.

But an investigative report says there is clear and credible evidence to back up the accuser’s claims.

The report was written by an attorney Paulding County paid nearly $18,000 in taxpayer money to investigate a sexual harassment complaint against Donovan.

Donovan fired back just days later with a 100-plus page denial and a sworn affidavit in which Donovan said, “I am very, very reluctant to characterize it as sexual harassment because. I have never said I wanted to have sex with her, I have never tried to have sex with her.”
