It was brought to this publication's attention that the information we received & published in yesterday's piece was erroneous. Our source for that number was "mistaken." I apologize for that.
It was confirmed today that the Newton Co. BOC had spent $150,000 - not $250,000 - & per the County Attorney (per Ronnie Cowan), the county's insurance picked up $90,000 of that amount. So, out of pocket legal fees for the home county = $60K on top of the $175,000 for the settlement.
Thanks for reading.
