The Marion County Attorney’s office has added new information to their website to inform residents about what’s happening in our courts.
County Attorney Ed Bull is now posting weekly summaries of the disposition of cases handled by his office. Bull says he campaigned on a promise that his office would be more accessible and transparent to the voters and this helps fulfill that promise. He adds that this allows individuals to see that they are treating similarly situated people equally and it allows for follow-up when the public hears of an individual’s arrest, they can then find out what eventually happened.
Bull says most counties in the state have been posting this type of information for a while now and they try to post updates on a weekly basis. He says however, in the event that his office is working on more pressing matters things may get delayed but the goal is to have the reports out by Wednesday about what occurred the previous week.
The reports are released each Friday and include information on the charges and the results of the settlement.
A copy of the report will be posted weekly at knia/krls.com under today’s news.
