Broward County, FL — A former Florida police officer has admitted to forcing undocumented immigrants into having sex with him.
Jonathan Bleiweiss, 34, pleaded guilty to an array of charges last week, admitting to 14 counts of armed false imprisonment, 15 counts of battery and four counts of stalking. However, he avoided all of the charges with “sex” in them.

Bleiweiss, 34, the former Broward Sheriff's deputy accused of intimidating undocumented immigrants into performing sex acts with him, cut a deal sending him to prison for just five years, without having the stain of a sex-offender status following him the rest of his life. Bleiweiss pleaded guilty to 14 counts of armed false imprisonment, 15 counts of battery and four counts of stalking. He will also serve 10 years of probation and have to undergo a psycho-sexual evaluation, Broward Circuit Judge Michael Robinson ordered.

Broward County sheriff's correctional deputies battered and bruised Audra West while she was held in jail last year. The question is: was the beating necessary to restrain West or was it handed out by a deputy who wanted to teach her a lesson?

Two longtime Hollywood police officers fired earlier this year after allegations they falsified records in a police-involved crash were arrested Wednesday on criminal charges in that case.
Florida election integrity advocate Ellen Brodsky was arrested last November on false charges of misdemeanor trespass, for attempting to witness a public meeting involving counting of the votes in Broward County. Now, Broward County has dropped all charges, basically admitting they had arrested her without legal cause. This is an outrage for a citizen like Ellen to be arrested for exercising her rights to make sure our votes are counted accurately.
A Florida deputy has been indicted for manslaughter in the shooting death of Jermaine McBean, who was killed while walking home with an unloaded pellet gun he had just bought a pawn shop.
Broward County Sheriff's Deputy Peter Peraza, who was given a bravery award for the shooting by his bosses while it was still under investigation, surrendered and was expected to be released on $25,000 bond, prosecutors said.
He was suspended without pay and faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted.
The case is the first time since 1980 that a police officer in Broward County has been indicted for a fatal on-duty shooting.
The next big step in this case is a motion that Peraza’s attorney filed claiming that Peraza’s actions were covered under the stand your ground law. That motion will be heard in June 2016.
Despite police regulations that state that any violent confrontation with an inmate has to be reported in writing;
Deputy Connelly had made no such report.
Yet upon receiving West’s lawsuit, Connelly filed a counter-claim, saying West resisted arrest, assaulted her, and scratched her face.
Upon viewing the CCTV footage, assistant state attorney Mark Horn took West’s side, and no proceedings were opened against her.
“I did not see where Audra West presented a physical threat to the deputy before being forcefully dragged out of her chair into a room with four other deputies, where Audra West was allegedly beaten," said Horn.
But despite support from Horn, West was unable to win the case against the four deputies. They were all cleared of improper conduct by a commission gathered by Broward Sheriff's Office (BSO).
A Broward sheriff’s deputy who had been cleared by her own agency has now
been charged criminally by the State Attorney’s Office with battery on an inmate who was left with black eyes
and bruises after requesting a tampon in the jail.
Detention Deputy Kristen Connelly was charged with misdemeanor battery, which is punishable by up to a year in jail, in
the assault on inmate Audra West, who had been booked into jail on a disorderly
conduct charge while vacationing from Texas.
Connelly in a written report admitted to punching West twice with a closed fist inside the room, but said the force was
necessary to restrain her.
BSO said she will be suspended with pay pending the
outcome of the criminal case.
The Broward State Attorney's Office dropped the case against Officer Patrick Gravelle, saying it was unlikely to lead to a conviction if taken to trial.
Gravelle, an 11-year veteran with the Sunrise Police Department, was arrested in July on charges of battery and two counts of aggravated assault with a firearm, a second-degree felony that carries a maximum 15-year sentence.
Robert Buschel, the officer's attorney, said his client was pleased to learn the case was over.
