Cover Story: Personnel records open to the public

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Confidential documents unsealed.

A change in the law means we'll soon learn new details about an alleged predator policeman, a disgraced detective an educator in exile and more.

So, why release these records? Why now?

We're talking about all government employees:  our lawmakers, our police officers, our teachers.

We trust these people.  And when they mess up, the public demands details.  Now we're gonna get them.

North Carolina's sunshine law just got a little bit brighter.

PrimeTime's Jeff Atkinson explains in our Cover Story.
