Judge recommends disbarment for lawyers in shock jock tria

A judge has recommended permanent disbarment for three Tampa lawyers accused of orchestrating the DUI arrest of a rival attorney.
Senior Pinellas Judge W. Douglas Baird issued his recommendation Thursday. He previously ruled the attorneys' actions violated Florida Bar rules. The case will go to the Florida Supreme Court for a final decision.
Stephen Diaco, Robert Adams and Adam Filthaut represented a radio host named Bubba The Love Sponge Clem in a defamation lawsuit brought by another rival radio host, Todd "MJ" Schnitt.
Schnitt was represented by lawyer Phil Campbell. He was charged with DUI in January 2013, during the trial. The Florida Bar said that Diaco, Adams and Filthaut set Campbell up and used a paralegal and a Tampa police officer to help.

Man Impersonates Deputy, Picks Up Prostitute

A man is in trouble with the law, accused of impersonating those that uphold it while he solicited a prostitute.
Mark William Rose,22, appeared before a judge in bond court on Thursday among the law enforcement he is accused of impersonating.
Authorities said Rose posed as a Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO) deputy and solicited a prostitute before “arresting” her.
Rose then allegedly took her to the BSO headquarters and pretended to call someone to let him and the prostitute in.
At one point, he allegedly told the prostitute to give him a reason to let her go.
Authorities said the prostitute did not end up giving him what he wanted and ended up reporting him to authorities.
In court on Thursday, the judge decided to let him out on a low bond. Rose’s father said he had no idea this was happening and would get his son help.
Rose is charged with impersonating a law enforcement officer and false imprisonment.

Woman scammed out of $10,000 and jewelry

Tampa Bay area police are searching for a man and woman who scammed an 84-year-old woman out of more than $10,000 in cash and $9000 worth of jewelry.
St. Petersburg police say the male suspect approached the elderly woman in a Walmart parking lot Friday claiming that he had found $300,000. The female suspect then joined the conversation, and agreed to put up $50,000 in collateral so that a bank employee the man knew could help them keep the money.
The elderly woman also agreed to put up collateral, returning home to get the money and jewelry. After handing the collateral over to the man, he told her he would be back in five minutes. He never returned, and the elderly woman was unable to locate the male or female suspect.

BSO eyes Pompano Beach Shooting Death

The Broward Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting that left a man dead Tuesday afternoon in Pompano Beach.
BSO deputies responded to a shooting call at around 4 p.m. in the front courtyard of a Pompano Beach residence at 616 NW 5th Ave.
Witnesses told BSO 31-year-old Patrick Jean had been shot and that friends had rushed him to Broward Health North Medical Center. Jean was pronounced dead at the hospital a short time later.
Detectives said as Jean played dominoes with friends in the courtyard, a vehicle pulled up and some men who were known to the victim got out. There was reportedly a dispute and one of the men from the vehicle pulled out a gun and began firing.
Anyone with additional information about this homicide is urged to contact Broward Crime Stoppers at (954) 493-TIPS (8477) or online at http://www.browardcrimestoppers.org.

County cleaning company accused of cheating on minority business requirements

Inspector General report alleges Sunshine Cleaning engaged in 'scheme to mislead'
A company with a big contract to clean the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport is accused of misleading county officials and shortchanging minority businesses in the process.
When the Broward County Commission awarded Sunshine Cleaning a $62 million janitorial contract at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport, the firm promised to spread 30 percent of that wealth to small and minority companies to fulfill its obligations under the County Business Enterprise program.
But the company then created a scheme to mislead the county regarding minority participation, according an Office of Inspector General report issued Wednesday, claiming in reports filed with the county that it provided nearly $11 million in business to those small companies, but in reality only giving about $660,000 in business to them.
"It was a scheme," Broward Inspector General John Scott said. "Sunshine cleaned the airport using its own employees, it hired them, it fired them, it disciplined them and it supervised them. They represented to the county that the employees belonged to four or five [small and minority businesses]. They misrepresented the relationship they had ... rather than allowing [subcontractors do the work] it merely allowed them to act as a fiction for Sunrise."
Sunshine Cleaning's owner, Larry Calufetti, who has been large campaign contributor to commission campaigns, put out a statement through a public relations firm, reading in part, "We won't let the OIG damage our company's reputation for honesty and great work that we have earned over more than 30 years in business. We have always been transparent with the county and stand by our business practices."
But Scott said proof of the scheme came in IRS filings, which contradicted Sunshine's claims to the county that its own employees were actually employed by minority firms like Emily K. Evans, which the OIG alleges received millions of dollars it never saw.
"When Sunshine had to file documents with the Florida Department of Revenue and the IRS, in that instance Sunshine admitted they were their employees," Scott said.
The OIG is recommending that the county fine Sunshine as much $140,000 for each year of non-compliance and the county is exploring that option. The state attorney's office investigated and determined criminal charges weren't warranted in the case.
