The legal council for the Jacksonville, FL, sheriff’s office acknowledged that it had been overcharging for records for a almost 20 years because it assumed a city ordinance preempted state law. The overcharge came to light when the city proposed to double the current charge from $3 to $6 for arrest and booking reports, accident reports and general offence reports. State law puts the charge at 20 cents for each two sided page. (6/6/08)
