State Auditor Says District Attorney Needs More Documentation When Disbursing Forfeiture Funds
State Auditor Suzanne Bump says the Bristol County District Attorney’s office needs better record-keeping when it comes to disbursing money seized in police investigations to area non-profits.
State auditors spent more than six months looking at records in the Dstirct Attorney’s office, and determined some $2,000 worth of transactions involving forfeiture money needed more documentation.
D-A Sam Sutter says awarding that money has generally been pretty informal…..
Sutter said he respects the Auditor’s office and what they do. The Auditor also found fault with the Worcester County D-A’s office and how they handle disbursements of forfeiture funding.
