    04/08/19 Editor’s Note: The Buncombe County District Attorney’s Office did provide us with the requested information on 01/29/19. The referenced report as it was received to Sunshine Request by Steven Cogburn was called “Copy of Unverified BUNCOMBE COUNTY Disposed 01-25-2019_20190129 ” .

     

    Sunshine Request is trying to balance providing good data to the public, while minimizing the amount of personally identifiable information we publish as relates to criminal justice.

     

    Therefore, as relates to the above request, we are not comfortable publishing the original version of the document on our site. Sunshine has removed fields of personally identifiable information that were provided back to us – Specifically, we removed Names, and Case #s. We have left demographic information as it was received. We have also renamed the file.

     

    Please see referenced Redacted file ([REDACTED] Unverified BUNCOMBE COUNTY Disposed 01-25-2019_20190129.xlsx) at top left in “Documents”.

     

    If the requestor would like to access the full data, please feel free to make a new request by contacting the Buncombe County DA’s Office directly.

     

    Thank you!

    Good Afternoon Buncombe County DA’s Office ,

     

    Thank you for your assistance with the request! We apologize for the delayed followed up.

     

    Due to privacy concerns we have edited the document that you sent back to exclude all fields containing personally identifiable information. Specifically, we removed the fields for Names, and Case #s. We have left demographic information as it was received. We have also renamed the file (Now called: [REDACTED] Unverified BUNCOMBE COUNTY Disposed 01-25-2019_20190129.xlsx).

     

    We will make it clear to users on our site that the request was fulfilled by Buncombe County DA’s office on 01/29/19, and that the document posted on our site is an edited version Sunshine Request has created, removing the specified fields. We haven’t posted these updates on our site yet, but will be doing so this week.

     

    We will also indicate that if the sender does wish to access the full data, they should please contact the DA’s Office directly.

     

    Thank you very much for your assistance with the request.

     

    Have a great afternoon!

    Sunshine:
    Attached is a report from the Administrative Office of the Courts for January 25, 2019. This is not a record of this office but does reflect activity for that day.

     

    If someone wishes to view the files on the list they can come to the clerk’s office during normal business hours.

    Sunshine:

     

    I will check to see what report(s) can be run to help with this request. Unfortunately each file is handled individually and once presented to my office, we process and place into the file. As a result there is no specific record for this request.

     

    I will see what we can find. I am certain that we will not have specific case types or reductions. The best we might be able to do is run a report for Friday to see what it gives us.

     

    Steve
