That's right folks, the mortgage fraudster who was arrested for beating the crap out of his wife then smothered her with a pillow the day he got out of jail on his mortgage fraud charges was charged for another case of domestic violence WHILE HE WAS IN JAIL! That's right, while the subject of this weeks blog posts was sitting in jail waiting to make bail for his mortgage fraud misadventures, he was actually charged and arraigned for another instance of beating his wife! From the police report...
In case you can't read the text, here it is...
The victim and defendant are married. The victim states that she walked outside their home to ask the defendant for the car keys. The defendant replied no, at which time the victim walked back inside the home and threw a bike on the floor. The defendant went inside and began slapping the victim in her face. On 10-06-08 a routine computer check revealed that the defendant was incarcerated at Dade County Jail on an unrelated charge (see case # PD081003473153). Defendant charged with the above listed offense.WTF? Getting charged for domestic violence while you're already sitting in jail for another crime? I don't get it, the guys wife had to know he was sitting in jail, so why would she go ahead and file this report? Regardless of her motivation, as I mentioned yesterday, the state of Florida has some very strict procedures for dealing with cases of domestic violence and the court doesn't play around when it comes to dealing with men who beat on women.
Let's recap the time line of events as we've described them over the last few days as they pertain to the domestic violence and mortgage fraud charges...
- October 3, 2008 - Subject is charged with Grand Theft, Organized Scheme to Defraud and Identity theft during the commission of a mortgage fraud and is taken into custody.
- October 6, 2008 - Subjects wife files a domestic violence complaint, subject is charged and arraigned for Battery while he's in jail waiting to bond out on the other charges stemming from the mortgage fraud. Somehow he's given a bond while he's in jail (100K I think).
- October 10, 2008 - Subject is released on bond for the charges associated with the mortgage fraud case ($450k bond) and I suppose on the $100k bond from the domestic violence case that he was charged with while in custody.
- October 15, 2008 - Subject is charged once again for domestic violence, arrested and taken back into custody.
- October 17, 2008 - Subject posts bond once again and is released from jail.
Something is rotten here folks, it's starting to seem to me that there was an outside influence involved with keeping this guy out of jail, perhaps someone on the state's side that had an interest in keeping this guy as clean as possible and to make his stay within the criminal justice system as painless as possible. Has anyone connected the dots yet? If not, things will begin to make sense real soon.
Have a great weekend!
