Miami-Dade State Attorney
For more than a year, the Miami Dade State Attorney has been investigating Congressman David Rivera for possible campaign finance law violations. But CBS4 News has learned the case is now closed and no charges will be brought against the Republican freshman.
Former private school PE director Paul Mira, charged with sexual abuse of two students including a 12-year-old girl, has accepted a plea deal that makes him a sex offender for life, bans him from teaching, but keeps him from prison. The parents of the girls accepted the deal to keep their kids from having to testify.
A day after CBS4 News revealed how David Rivera took advantage of a little-known loophole in Florida’s campaign finance laws, the freshman Congressman defends his actions.
Florida Law Enforcement officials and Miami Police are crediting a 10-year-old kidnap victim and his 14 year-old friend with helping crack a month old case.
The attorneys for a South Florida man who was accused of molesting a seven-year-old girl and later not prosecuted by the state issued a statement Saturday.
The Miami-Dade County State Attorney’s Office announced Friday that Julius Dupree, who was arrested on molestation charges earlier this year, would not be prosecuted at the present time because the charges couldn’t be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
The Miami Dade State Attorney’s Office is investigating more than half a million dollars in secret payments from the owners of Flagler Dog Track to a company operated by Congressman-elect David Rivera’s mother.
“We have been receiving numerous phone calls where in women are expressing their levels of frustration that they can not even get an appointment,” said Rosa Naccaroto with the Miami Dade Commission for Women, which reached out to the I-Team alarmed over the frustration and fear they were hearing in the voices of the women calling them.
“These are children that need to be fed everyday and when the non custodial parents stop paying it becomes an immediate situation,” says Naccaroto.
