Fired police chief claims indigence, asks DeKalb to pay to transcribe appeal

Fired police chief claims indigence, asks DeKalb to pay to transcribe appeal
December 4, 2009 --

Terrell Bolton, formerly DeKalb County’s $162,000-a-year police chief, is claiming indigence as he tries to get his job back. Bolton says he can’t afford to pay a court reporter to transcribe the four-day hearing held on his appeal of his dismissal. Bolton was fired in February for insubordination and misuse of county vehicles, including a $32,000 Range Rover and a $55,000 Mercedes Benz assigned for his use.
