Loophole in court policy allows defendants to hide assets
"Investigative Reporter A.J. Lagoe with WRIC-Richmond uncovered widespread fraud in Virginia’s court system. Because of a loophole in court policy, criminal defendants are able to hide assets from the court when asking for a court appointed attorney."
"The court appointed attorney program costs taxpayers millions of dollars each year, and much of that money may be paying for lawyers for defendants that don’t qualify."
