City of Miami Commissioner Michelle Spence-Jones opens up a can of whoop ass on State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle!
We've discussed City of Miami Commissioner, Michelle Spence-Jones, and her legal struggles over the last several years many times throughout the course of our blog. Following her legal battles with the state attorneys office was especially tough for me as I saw many parallels in how they dealt with her with how the state dealt with my wife's case from back in October 2008, fabricated evidence, coercion of witnesses, lying prosecutors etc. Most damaging though was the loss of reputation and standing in the community not to mention the financial devastation that was visited on my family and I'm sure the Spence-Jones household as well.
If you're fortunate enough to have your criminal case either dismissed or go to trial and be acquitted, everyone tells you to be happy, put it behind you and go on your way and try the best you can to put your life back together. That's really tough to stomach as a victim of a wrongful or malicious prosecution, how can you sit back and have your life be ruined and then not want to get revenge when you're vindicated? Even worse, when people tell you that you should be thankful to the state attorneys office for dismissing the charges against you? WTF? Luckily, our friend Michelle Spence-Jones wasn't having any part of that nonsense and yesterday she took the first step in finding justice and punishing those who tried to destroy her by filing this lawsuit in federal court...
Michelle Spence-jones Lawsuit Against Katherine Fernandez Rundle and Tomas Regalado
Take the time and read the complaint, it's incredible. Someone has finally memorialized what we have all known to be true here in Miami, that there is a political mob that runs this town that all work together to cover each other and to go after what they perceive as common enemies. More on this later, as I believe that this lawsuit speaks directly to several of the cases that we've been writing about recently.
Also, I'd like to take a moment to thank all of you who both publicly and privately have sent me messages regarding the passing of my father. I can't tell you how much it means to me to know that there are people out there who I've never even met, let alone know, that took time out of their day to think about me. Thank you friends, you guys are the reason that I keep moving forward.
