Price Tag for Martin Lee Anderson Trial

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) _ The bills are still coming in, but
officials have already amassed more than $196,000 in bills related
to the trial of eight former boot camp employees in the death of
14-year-old Martin Lee Anderson.

Jurors acquitted the drill instructors and nurse at a military-style juvenile detention center in the teen's death.

The prosecution spent $156,508 _ and that's not including salaries or attorney's fees. The defense said it spent about $40,000.

A state forensic expert billed $21,000 for 50 hours of record review, deposition and trial testimony. A medical examiner billed $12,600 for his participation. And a sickle cell trait expert cost about $19,000.
