WAKE COUNTY REGISTER OF DEEDS CHARLES GILLIAM ISSUES STATEMENT ON THE INDICTMENTS ANNOUNCED BY THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY

Raleigh, NC – Over several days in January 2017, some Register of Deeds staff members conducted an ad hoc audit and investigation of suspect transactions. Staff members determined that money was unaccounted for, calculated amounts missing, collected evidence, and presented a report to Wake County management at the end of January.

The subsequent investigation by official authority supplied additional information and confirmed that the gravamen of what was reported in January was correct.

If this ad hoc audit had not been initiated money probably would still be walking out the courthouse door today.

What was done in the past is in the past. As long as I am here, this past shall not be prologue.

Yesterday’s indictments are exemplary of a statewide problem. Theft by public officials occurs far too often. We must be vigilant in every city, town, school system and county and step up efforts to audit, verify and root out dishonesty.
