It's the accounting, stupid!

By Brian Privor, Esq.

Sheriff Marlin Gusman admits he overcharged the City $2 million for prisoners in his custody that were actually federal inmates for which the federal government has already paid. He supposedly refunded the money (with interest?), but this is the second time in a month Gusman has had to fess up to double billing the City. Gusman blames it on the transition to a new computer system mandated by the State. I think incompetence is more apt. Gusman has a history of not having a clue who he has in custody. When it comes to generating revenue for the Sheriff fiefdom, he conveniently has more names on the rolls than he should. When it comes to knowing who's in custody and for how long, he feigns ignorance. Can the City get a refund on Gusman?
