She didn’t clandestinely hide anything that she was doing. She was on the phone, she was distracted, and when she went to pay, naturally she forgot to pay, her attorney Weintraub said.

This was a terrible mistake but this was not a crime. Stacey Honowitz would not commit a crime and did not commit a crime.

The Broward prosecutor has been reinstated to her position, earning about $108,000 a year, following a suspension, the Sun Sentinel reported.

Did Honowitz Get Special Treatment? 

We’ll have to approach this from two slightly different perspectives. The first one is viewing Ms. Honowitz as a private citizen, and a professional, (attorney).

From that perspective; she was offered what many first time offenders would have been offered. Pre-trial diversion, and the charges dropped.

Our sources tell us she had to watch a four hour online video about shoplifting.

Viewing this now from the other perspective; Ms. Honowitz as an attorney, (officer of the court), all attorneys are officers of the court, and as a  Prosecutor/Law Enforcement Officer. Prosecutors are considered to be law Enforcement Officers in Florida.

Well, from what you can see in the police report, when police are arrested, they cover up a lot of information about them. Such as her fingerprint and signature.

Something else really got our attention. These two statements made by her attorney:

“the case against Honowitz was dropped following a thorough review of video footage documenting the Broward prosecutor’s time in Publix on that day.”

her client was standing next to a Publix employee when she dropped the cosmetics into her purse.

And-

She was on the phone, she was distracted

Look At The Video AGAIN

FALSEHOOD ONE

Her attorney, Jayne Weintraub,claims-“her client was standing next to a Publix employee when she dropped the cosmetics into her purse.

Looking at the video, we fail to see any Publix employee anywhere near Honowitz. There is a Publix cart an employee would use to stock shelves, but no employee is to be seen.

FALSEHOOD TWO

She was on the phone, she was distracted“

She certainly doesn’t seem to be distracted. She is not talking on the phone, or texting. She is holding her phone in her left hand. It’s possible she was using one of those shopping list apps, but she definitely does not seem to be distracted.

A couple other things that deserve mentioning

Cases are suppose to be assigned to judges randomly.
