Earlier this month, the U.S. Attorney Office for the District of Oregon announced that it had closed the case on pursuing federal criminal charges against anyone involved in the 2017 wrongful arrest of a Portland Black man.

The feds said they found insufficient evidence to support federal prosecution. The case dates back to 2015 when Michael Fesser reported racial discrimination by his coworkers at a towing company in Southeast Portland.

Fesser’s boss, afraid of a lawsuit, asked his friend then-West Linn Police Chief Terry Timeus for help. According to an investigation, Timeus ordered some of his officers to create a fake criminal case against Fesser. They accused him of stealing from his workplace, which was a bogus charge.

In 2017, West Linn police and Portland police arrested Fesser as he was heading home from work. The charges were eventually dropped because prosecutors realized it was all made up.
