The arresting officer in a crack cocaine offense has since been fired by the department because he was found to be accepting bribes, rather than bringing the correct charges against criminals. Since he is now a criminal himself, lawyers who are involved in the case have stated that his testimony on many things is not able to be trusted.
After he was fired, the officer moved to Arizona, but one of his cases from Florida has gathered a lot of attention. While working there, he arrested a man on drug charges and claimed that the man tried to sell crack cocaine. The man said that he never did it, that he never made the sale, but he was convicted anyway and given 24 years in prison. This took place in 2001.
