News broke yesterday that DeKalb County District Attorney Robert James had reduced nine felony charges he had brought against Bob Lundsten, former Chief of Staff to DeKalb Commissioner Elaine Boyer*.
Lundsten had been facing more than 10 years in jail when DA James indicted him in March of this year. But after James’ misuse of his own P-card and illegal reimbursements came to light, the charges were reduced to misdemeanors. Lundsten has reimbursed the county the $310 in question, and has already started his community service. But former Attorney General Mike Bowers, who led the infamous investigation into DeKalb corruption, has some serious questions about the conduct of the District Attorney.
