On October 28, I noted that more than 16 months had passed since the arraignment of Gwinnett County attorney Christopher T. Adams on 17 counts each of making false statements and theft by taking after Gwinnett County District Attorney Danny Porter alleged 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 to the tune of more than $40,000.00. After an inquiry into the tip line, I couldn’t find any reason for the tremendous delay (admittedly only based on a review of records online) in prosecuting this case where the government was allegedly defrauded a considerable sum on money.
One supposes that simply asking the question shook something loose because within hours of the posting here, Adams’ attorney Walt Britt filed four motions with regard to the case. These matters are now scheduled to be heard on January 07, 2010 at 1:30 p.m. before Judge Warren Davis in Gwinnett County Superior Court.
What an amazing coincidence that, after 16 months sitting dormant, this matter is now back on track only hours after a posting here.
