County faces attorney fee backlog
LAKE ANDES -- Charles Mix County is working on making a dent in collecting about $2.3 million in back court-appointed attorney fees owed by offenders.
County Auditor Angie Meyerink, who has been in office for four years, said the backlog extends to the 1980s. She inherited the problem when she took office and doesn't know how the backlog grew to seven figures.
