- City employees driving cars with deadly defects
I was first to report on the arrest of Jacques Edwards, a juvenile counselor for the Administration for Children’s Services. I then ran his name through the state correction database and determined he’d served 28 years in prison for murder—the city never bothered to conduct a background check.
This is part four of a series of investigative reports on cars with deadly recalls. I pulled vehicle records of hundreds of city vehicles and found that many employees were driving cars with potentially deadly defects.
These reports led to a change in city law prohibiting the Department of Finance from selling cars with recalls and requiring immediate safety fixes on city vehicles with recalls.
