Fort Lauderdale Police Say Its Cops Aren't Facing Any Charges -- That It Knows Of

Amid the dissemination of the transcripts from Scott Rothstein's deposition in Miami, the Fort Lauderdale Police Department has released a statement claiming none of the department's employees will be facing charges -- that it knows of.

Rothstein was asked about his associations with organized crime as well as his claims that he bribed cops and judges, which drew objections from Assistant U.S. District Attorney Lawrence LaVecchio -- citing investigative privilege -- when things got too specific.

Fort Lauderdale Police Lt. Frank Sousa put out a statement today saying that the Broward State Attorney's Office review resulted in zero charges against department employees and that the federal investigation hasn't resulted in any charges either -- "to our knowledge."

Here's the statement Sousa sent out just a few minutes ago:

The Fort Lauderdale Police Department has complete faith in the federal investigation which, to our knowledge, has not generated criminal charges against any employees of the Department.  

Furthermore, the Fort Lauderdale Police Department's Office of Internal Affairs conducted an administrative investigation, inclusive of all the information available to the Department at the time, to determine if any employees violated Department policy. Numerous employees were found to have violated policy and appropriate corrective action was taken.  That investigation was then submitted to the Broward State Attorney's Office for their independent review. Their review resulted in no criminal charges being levied against any employee of the Fort Lauderdale Police Department.  

Obviously, if any specific allegations of criminal or administrative misconduct, that we were previously unaware of, are brought to the attention of the Department, a thorough and objective investigation will commence.

Do you know shit? SR went from the biggest piece of shit that all of you attacked to your new hero. Have an original thought instead of what your false god Mr. Norman puts into your tiny head. SR is a liar. You will see no FLPD employees prosecuted.

With do nothing jerkoff Satz on the case it doesn't suprise me that nothing was found....yet.

Must be classified information and held off because of "County Security" concerns.

Satz is probably in Aspen right now on a well deserved skiing vacation.

SR, you should definitely throw these LE guys under the bus for anything they took or participated in.  Especially let us know if Frank Sousa was greeding off the Ponzi. We know Adderley was.

Is that the same Frank Sousa who let his drinking buddy, Ryan LeVin get out of a ticket minutes before LeVin plowed into, killed two tourists and left the scene of the crime, then set up his buddy, lied to Sousa and the FDLE.  Then got driven home to his luxury condo BY the FLPD?  That same Frank Sousa??  I predict there will be dirt under his fingernails and he'll go down with Adderley.

That entire accusation has no truth to it. By the way, is this the same Vicky who stole the Limberg baby and hid it along with Jimmy Hoffa's body? See, it's easy to start rumors. Top mine.

Maybe Judge McCarthy was one of the corrupt judges taking Rothstein's ponzi money on the side.  Wouldn't that be grand if she was in on it and the "real" judge gave her 10 years behind bars, while the killer LeVin lives in luxury.

Has not resulted in any criminal charges...yet.  Let's revisit that statement in about 90 days.
