FLORIDA CARRY ALERT

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – September 18, 2011

Orange County Sheriff's Office releasing private gun owner info - Request for special prosecutor.

Florida Carry, Inc., through our attorneys, has requested that Governor Scott appoint a special prosecutor to investigate felony violations of state law by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff Demings' department utilized secure police databases, intended for use in the enforcement of law, for his office's lobbying efforts and made private gun owner, concealed firearms licensee, and driver's license data public despite multiple state and federal laws.

 

Orlando area State Attorney Lawson Lamar's Office has refused to fully investigate this issue and cleared high ranking members of the Sheriff's lobbying team of any wrongdoing within days despite clear violations of state and federal law. There is a clear conflict of interest when the local prosecutor is tasked with investigating the department he relies on to bring him cases. A Special Prosecutor is necessary to remove any bias or perception of impropriety.

We urgently need you to email Governor Scott NOW!

 

Include “Please appoint a special prosecutor for OCSO” in the Subject Line

SUBJECT: Please appoint a special prosecutor for OCSO!

 

Dear Governor Scott, 

 

This e-mail is to express my great concern that senior members of the Orange County Sheriff's Office utilized the private personal information of Florida gun owners, obtained from secure law enforcement databases, for their lobbying efforts in Tallahassee. This data is intended for use in the enforcement of law, not release to the public to support a political agenda. Despite state and federal law, an Orange County Sheriff's Captain in charge of the lobbying office released Driver's License photos in a list of Concealed Weapons/Firearms License (CWFL) holders and Gun Owners before testifying before a Senate Committee considering SB 234.

Florida Carry requested an investigation be opened by the local State Attorney but received a letter, days later, saying that there was no violation of law. I join Florida Carry in asking that a Special Prosecutor be appointed to investigate the felony release of a gun owner list, CWFL data, and other protected personal information.

There is a clear conflict of interest when the local prosecutor is tasked with investigating the department he relies on to bring him cases. A Special Prosecutor is necessary to remove any bias or perception of impropriety.

 

 

Respectfully yours,
