Yep excessive fees are a red flag. The Enotah Judicial Public Defenders thru the Georgia Public Defenders Standards Council do the same thing.. charges in excess we forwarded to the Attorney Generals Office of which stated sorry we represent them cant help you. They are covering theft of services, discrimination, etc. They went so far as to file a TPO calling it harassment. Interesting thing no one ever went to that office it was all requested via email. The TPO was granted believe that. Now the Georgia Public Defenders Standards Counsel no longer will accept Open Records Request via email.. they have a lot to hide..
I have Experienced the same issue. Enotah Judicial Public defenders office White County Ga. Not only have they charged at least 10x's what is allowed by the current law they Filed a TPO calling it harassment. And I never walked into that office all done via email with copies forwarded to the Attorney General.. and the Corrupt bunch here of course granted it. Also states that I can not request any more records.. All to cover theft of tax payers funds. The Judges, attorneys and public defenders and the public defenders standards council are all in this together.. Attorney generals office stated sorry mama we cant help you. If you want to file a suit we will represent the corrupt bunch.. Those laws are actually useless.
