Christopher T. Adams, Esquire, pictured here, has been charged with 17 counts each of making false statements and theft by taking by Gwinnett County District Attorney Danny Porter. What did Adams allegedly do? According to the AJC:
The county’s investigation found that Adams, appointed by the county to defend poor clients who could not afford their own counsel, billed the county for meeting with his clients or their families despite not doing so, Porter said. Porter’s office investigated Adams’ invoices from 2005 through the end of 2006. Adams falsely billed the county for a little more than $40,000, Porter said.
This was first investigated by Fox 5 about a year ago, so one can expect that Porter and his team have an iron clad case having taken their time to make sure everything was properly investigated.
Enjoy prison, Mr. Adams. You deserve it.
