Worcester DA Accused of Mishandling Money

Published by Craig Shibley

The MA State Auditor today issued a scathing report specific to Worcester DA Joseph Early and his #1 Assistant Daniel Bennett.

The 21 page report, among several "shortcomings", cites their failure to properly report financial fringe benefits to the IRS as required by law.

Mr. Early's Office is the very one which was initially directed to investigate Wonderland, MA 01005's criminal audit.

Mr. Early's Office is the very one whose Detective Unit contacted this community journalist and threatened me.

Mr. Early's Office is the very one which decided to pursue the bogus resisting arrest charges issued against me by Wonderland's police department.

So who is going to charge JOE?!

Waiting & watching - closely.

We also reviewed variousaspects of WCDA’s fiscal and programmatic activities, including activities in its programs relative to victim-witness services, juvenile justice, and asset forfeiture.
