My question involves civil rights in the State of: Florida
I will try to make this short. There was a robbery at a business I stayed at 5 months prior. I was in contact with probation officer and notified where I was was because she was filing a warrant for violation of no contact order & was arrested. 5 months later there is robbery there. the officer finds out there had been a prior arrest and pulls my picture. did 4 person line up. I am the only one with jail clothes, only one with short hair, only thin face, only pale skin & bright blue/green eyes. the description of robber, I have a copy of CAD Operations report which give, BOLO 5'6" 150lbs, 30's, pony tail. (also person robbed states "tan-mexican." ME 5'2, 124lbs, very short hair, pale skin, 54 yrs. The only person saw robbery was person robbed but he did not pick out my picture.
A woman that uses their pool said she saw me "acting strange" 2 hours prior to robbery & picks me because of "eyes" but she was not there during robbery. She is the ONLY evidence they have submitted for arrest warrant other than the fact i was arrested for no contact violation 5 months prior. There was no DNA no fingerprints, nothing but I supposedly hung out for over 2 hours before "jumping counter." I heard there were billborads with picture and warrant for arrest & made appointment to meet officer. I took witness I was in my own town,15-20 minutes away, with him & showed savings account receipt, $3000, I had NO reason to rob. Nevertheless, I was arrested? Of course it was later we found out about the only "evidence was for over 2 hours prior to news reports on time of robbery. We had 2 lottery tickets time/date stamped for 1 was few min before & 1 was few minutes after (store about 1/4 mile apart 15-20minutes) woman said she saw me. I also was at Walgreens in my town during this time and ask them to get security video but they refused. When I met & paid an attorney I gave same info. He also didn't get security tape & as of a few day ago when attorney finally wanted to get tape (6 months later) they no longer have tape. We also have neighbor, whom I don't get along with" that saw me outside smoking at approx time robbery. I dont see were they had probable cause for warrant. Why still going to trial 2/2014 & costing me money I have to borrow when I do NOT LOOK close to robber?
