  1. If only the citizens of Richmond/Burke counties would see this and think about what they have done to increase crime in their communities. This information needs to be spread about by billboard and TV also.

  2. WHAT ??!! The ONLY explanation is that the victim no longer has any relatives that are still living. Otherwise, I would be PISSED. This is an abuse case against an elderly individual, from a financial perspective. There is no excuse, other than the current D.A’s Office is weeding out “low hanging fruit” to reduce workload. Unless a viable explanation is given quickly, I would have to agree that the D. A.’s Office needs to be cleared out from the top, down.

    • That may start a nice precedent though. If a victim of murder is dead (what else?), there can be no charge. Interesting. Actually I wouldn’t put it past the DA to start using this as an argument!

  3. So the DA’s job if like being an intern for the mayor? You get paid a lot of money for doing nothing. That’s the entire premise of Augusta’s government white-collar criminal enterprise.

  4. Why is the District Attorney’s office releasing people and making deals with criminals instead of prosecuting them and let the courts and jury decide whos guilty or not guilty! Columbia county was smart to leave the circuit and go out on their own!
