Georgia Judge Was a Hard Working Lawyer, Maybe Too Hard Working--Update

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting Monday evening that the Gwinnett County District Attorney is investigating whether Judge Rodney Harris (pic) was exaggerating when he claimed to have been working astonishing hours for his indigent defendants.  The judge, a former private attorney who was working in the Georgia indigent public defense program was able to work these eye-popping hours, year after year billing the Georgia taxpayers over a million dollars under this indigent criminals program.  Randomly sampled bills that Judge Harris submitted while he was a private lawyer claims that on several occasions he worked 24-hour days, others 21 hours.

He's in trouble.
