Skipping court? Officers, bondsmen are on the hunt
Every day, hundreds of people skip court in Wake County, North Carolina, costing taxpayers' hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in lost time, resources and manpower to bring them in. Wake County deputies serve about 2,500 warrants a year, many for those who don't show up to court. But they aren't the only ones tracking down the no-shows. WRAL-TV spent time with the officers and bail bondsmen on the front lines of the sometimes dangerous war to restore order in the courtroom.
