More mistakes - more cost - more delays - justice is put on hold? I'm trying to make sense of what happened Tuesday in court and how yet another Assistant District Attorney has managed to impede the judicial process. At some point don't we as citizens of Brunswick County have a right to question the integrity of the process and actually get answers?
The fact that there were problems with the indictments and that once re-filed there were six additional charges - doesn't something seem to be wrong with that picture? The ADA stated that the case could have gone on, but Britt's counsel declined to do so and the judge granted a continuance. Why would they agree to go on as scheduled if all parties were aware that there were errors in the indictments? Also interesting is that the state paid for the travel of the victim's family so that they could be present at the court precedings. Since Mr. Britt has a court appointed attorney, I wonder if the State approved funding so that those testifying on his behalf could be present for court? Perhaps I'm just a bit confused about the process. I'm just left wondering exactly when professionalism and integrity to the process is going to return to the Brunswick County District Attorney's office. It should be interesting to see what changes, if any, are made in November. We can only hope that whatever the changes may be that they will truly be to the benefit of all citizens of Brunswick County.
