Morning Juice: Salesman Guilty on Felony Counts; Seminoles Get Exclusive Gambling Deal
Here's the news this morning from Broward and Palm Beach:
- After four hours of deliberation a jury found former Miramar Commissioner Fitzroy Salesman guilty on four felony counts of bribery and extortion. He faces up to 60 years in prison but will likely be sentenced to five to seven. These felony counts were delivered after his defense attorneys boasted they would "walk" their client. [Daily Pulp]
- Another jury decided to spare the life of a man that was convicted of first-degree murder after the death of a bystander during the robbery of the Three Amigos convenience store in Boynton Beach. They unanimously voted that Luis Alfonso Reyes Castillo spend his life in prison instead of facing lethal injection. [Palm Beach Post]
