Lee was being prosecuted by the state attorney general's office, which investigated the car tag discount scheme. Her defense attorney is Johnnie Walls. In addition to Lee, eight have been charged as a result of the investigation. Lee's two previous trials have ended in mistrials.
Now who would have predicted this verdict? Eight other employees in your department are participating in this "discount scheme" and you don't know about it?
What can I say? This is just another example of the perks of "club membership".
