Description

This investigation took a comprehensive look at the operation of the solicitor's office in on of the fastest growing, suburban counties in teh Metro Atlanta area. WAGA-TV found a solicitor who was slow to prosecute and a law enforcement community crying out for a tougher stance on serious violations of the law. The investigation revealed that the solicitor either dismissed or reduced nearly 1 out of every 4 DUI's his office handled. (Nov. 13 - 15, 22, & Dec. 22, 1995)
