Description

"The stories revealed that North Carolina's system for paying appointed lawyers is vulnerable to financial errors and abuse. One lawyer had repeatedly double-billed. On more than 50 occasions, he submitted multiple bills for expenses such as travel time, mileage and parking for what records indicated were single jail visits. Other lawyers had charged for visits that don't appear in jail records."
