FL: Judge rules Pinellas detective, prosecutors lied in child porn case. Defendant could go free

[tampabay.com – 11/21/19]

A 63-year-old man facing charges of lewd and lascivious molestation and possession of child pornography could go free after a judge found that Pinellas sheriff’s detectives and Pinellas-Pasco prosecutors lied to obtain a search warrant in the case.

The Tampa Bay Times obtained a Nov. 1 order written by Pinellas-Pasco Circuit Judge William Burgess III in which he found law enforcement officials engaged in a “ruse” to obtain a search warrant for one crime that they used to obtain evidence to prosecute other crimes.

“Had it not contained false statements and not omitted certain material facts, no reasonably prudent judge or magistrate would have signed the warrant,” the judge wrote.

Instead, the judge concluded “the police and prosecution knowingly and intentionally … made false statements.”

“The likely effect of this order is that all charges against the Defendant will have to be dismissed.”

      I think corruption is a vicious circle. Registries aren’t helping it. Registries breed complete contempt and disrespect for law enforcement. They know that people don’t respect them. So that doesn’t help them be decent people. And less and less decent people will work there. So they are bigger criminals. Which drives more contempt and disrespect. These days, most people who are attracted to law enforcement jobs aren’t so wonderful. So on it goes.

    This is a legal case involving a search warrant issued misleadingly. The suspect has issues, and will, in my opinion, be sooner or later arrested if he doesn’t change.
