Broward Legal Eagle Using The Stacy Ritter Defense

20121019-090103.jpg

David Bogenschutz, attorney for disgraced Deerfield Beach mayor Al Capellini, filed a motion claiming his client is the victim of selective prosecution. Bogenschutz’s motion alleges Capellini is facing jail time and criminal charges, while Broward County Commissioner Stacy Ritter (D-Booby Trap) and Coral Springs Mayor Scott Brook (D-Love Boat) faced ethics complaints and fines.

The motion is being heard this morning in Broward County court.

Mike Satz (D-Jimmy Carter) tends to go after the small fish, but it’s possible Bogenschutz could argue Democrats wiggle off the hook while a small time Republican politician gets hooked.

Stay tuned…
