Senator's Dealings With Wealthy Estate Scrutinized

Lawyer assigned by court clerk alleges 'self dealing'
By J. Andrew Curliss

CONCORD Sen. Fletcher Hartsell Jr. is one of the top Republicans in the state legislature, a veteran of more than 20 years in Raleigh with a reputation for getting things done. He boasted in a recent interview that in the past session, no one had a hand in more successful legislation.

But a deal in Hartsell’s private law practice is drawing attention of a different sort. He is a target of allegations of financial misconduct and negligence as the trustee of an elderly couple’s estate in his hometown of Concord.

Lawyer David Bland, of Matthews, was assigned by the court to sort out the details of the multimillion dollar estate of Harold and Audree Mills. Bland says in court documents that the senator has engaged in a “continuing course of self dealing transactions” and allowed his younger brother, Thomas Hartsell, to “grossly overcharge” a trust that held their money. A longtime employee, David Piatt, who helped the Millses with daily tasks for years, says the Hartsells “set out to pilfer this estate.”
