Brunswick County judge accuses DA of running a scheme
BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — It sounds like something out of a crime novel. A Brunswick County judge is accusing the District Attorney of running a scheme.
According to Chief District Court Judge Jerry Jolly, Brunswick County District Attorney Jon David is initiating a scheme that would help profit one of his 2010 campaign contributors.
In an administrative order, Jolly says David is setting up driving classes for those charged with speeding violations that would help reduce offenses.
Jolly’s order states that the four or eight hour classes would be exclusively conducted by Streetsafe, a private for profit company. The classes would cost $120, $100 of which would be paid to Streetsafe.
According to the order, Darrell Douglas is the director of the Streetsafe corporation and also gave about $500 to David’s election campaign last year.
The order calls the findings dishonest, Jolly concluding that David is running a scheme.
Jolly ordered that the Brunswick County DA not refer any defendants to classes performed by Streetsafe.
We tried contacting David, but he has not yet return our calls.
