Did you even take time to read the story before you starting taking shots at the news agency? Obviously not or you would see that the point of the story is that these mistakes coming out of the DA's office either end up letting guilty people go free (Oak Island Fire Chief) or costing the state thousands of dollars (this case). There is a pattern here. The DA is an elected official and should be held accountable. When mistakes happen he needs to admitt to them and let people know what he is doing about it so they don't happen again. Apparently the majority of people agree and that's why he will be leaving office soon. As far as your other comments about ADA's being overworked and underpaid, so are many other people. That is no excuse to continue to make the mistakes they make. If they can't handle the job they need to find a new one.
