Dale began his investigative career as a reporter, his most notable case being that of the crooked former DeKalb County Sheriff, Sidney Dorsey, and the murder of his successor, Derwin Brown. Dale moved away from conventional TV reporting in 2007 with a heightened desire to safeguard citizens from scammers and corruption.
