    It could be as simple as a contentious race for the Sheriffs spot, with its negative effects seething throughout the agency adding to its already toxic environment. Maybe it was a simple rumor that got out of control. Maybe it was because I was a high paid female in a male dominated environment, with authority and a strong personality, managing a complex HR system, they barely understood how it worked or what my job really consisted of. Maybe it was pure ego and they thought I was an easy target.

    Regardless of the reason, the facts are undisputed that 3 armed and uniformed law enforcement officers drove 4 hours outside of their jurisdiction and seized me and my belongings without a warrant or probable cause. They drove in unmarked police cars from Broward County to Orlando and unlawfully used their badges to obtain my room number from the front desk. The three armed, uniformed officers proceeded to my hotel room, after dark, where I was alone and entered my hotel room without my permission.

    After a long 4 hour ride in the backseat of the BSO vehicle, they dropped me off in the middle of the night in front of my home and told me to get an attorney.

    Three days later I saw a picture of me and my kids on the news, reporting that I was being accused of stealing a million dollars through the HR information System I managed at the Broward County Sheriffs Office. BSO kept the criminal case open for two years, refusing to speak to me or my attorney despite the fact that there was never any money missing, the State Attorneys Office said no evidence of a crime, no case and BSOs own Crimes Division detective said no evidence of a crime, no case. But BSO didn’t stop. They subpoenaed my personal bank accounts, wrapped my BSO office in crime tape, refused to give me my personal belongings from my office of 13 years.

    Once they finally closed the unlawful criminal case against me, I sued them. That was 7 years ago. I have been in litigation with them since.

    BSO refuses to settle. BSO refuses to admit wrong doing. BSO refuses to be held accountable for their numerous violations of my civil rights, their unlawful arrest outside of their jurisdiction or that their own deputies have lied under oath to cover for their misdeeds throughout this case.

    That night, October 23, 2012, I lost my six figure career, long term friends, my foundation of what I created in life for myself, my husband and my 2 girls. I was unable to leave my house for months, afraid they would arrest me if I walked outside. I couldn’t drive my kids alone for over a year, fearing they would arrest me and take my kids. I have been called a liar and a thief while watching my children’s soccer games. I have been refused jobs, uninvited from gatherings, both of my parents have died before seeing me get justice for what BSO has done.

    However, despite my fear then and now and the appalling misuse of power, I decided to fight back. Because I fought back, BSO has doubled down They have paid over a million dollars of Broward County tax dollars trying to run me out of court. But I am not leaving before we get justice, and neither is my attorney, thank goodness.

    It’s not just why BSO did it in the first place, but why won’t they admit they are wrong? Ego again? Spite because I am fighting back even though they are the largest law enforcement agency in the State of Florida and thought they could bully me? Or maybe because the BSO contract attorneys have an endless pot of money they have been getting from the Broward Sheriffs Office budget dollars for the last 7 years while they drag this out. Attorneys with no respect for the law don’t settle if they can keep the case open and keep charging $250 an hour. And they love to continuously insult me as a person during hearings and motions as often as they can.

    I guess me and my attorneys will see them at trial this year and let the jurors of our peers decide what it’s worth for what they have done to me.
    Investigations that carry on for months are all pure Sh!t. That’s why they take so long because they are trying to make something out of nothing but the longer it’s sits there the dumber it looks. If it’s a sh!t case in the beginning it will be a shittier case in a couple months down the road. If yours went on for two years that’s the ultimate dogsh!t case. There’s a lot of crap detectives that work for BSO. Always trying to make something out of nothing. This is a perfect example for all to see. The people behind this need to be punished harshly.

    This story is absolutely horrifying and honestly after reading this these deputies should be fired. Every last one of them.

    Man, I’m not sure who you are lady but you’re one tough cookie. I would like to get your autograph for surviving all this abuse of position and corruption and negligence and deliberate unlawful conduct from deputy sheriffs. I hope the courts and the jury make their lives as miserable as they made your life for no reason at all. Really losing your family and your home there is no amount of money they could ever pay that could make up for what they’ve done to you. BSO is out of control and completely corrupt. Looks like these detectives didn’t think the law really applies to them.

    My hope is my fight will help those who didn't have the courage or the ability to fight. BSO has messed with the wrong person.

    Thank you so much.

    Joanna Hely lied too to cover for their ass and her ass. She is just as guilty as the rest of them. Yet, she is now on the Professional Compliance committee. Typical BSO And I am sure she is still ****ing people over just for fun too like the rest of them.

    Because the outside counsel has made over a million dollars defending the indefensible. And BSO keeps writing the checks.

    Thank you so much for your support and kind words. You are right, there is no amount of money that can make it better or erase what has been done. I hope that not only I can get the benefit of an award but also make a difference in the disgusting behavior of BSO and their leadership. BSO is a cesspool of bad actors, to include deputies who lie under oath to cover their ass Yet they are still employed. Jennifer Zinglo is a perfect example of a liar who still works as a Law enforcement in our County. She should lose her badge.

    You need to go outside of Broward speak with the US Justice Department. It really appears as through you were forced and taken against your will with no probable cause and flimsy jurisdiction. Remember without probable cause it doesn’t matter if they had a deputy with multi county jurisdiction because it was a bad arrest to begin with. The harassment and stress caused caused afterwards has an infinite price tag on it. I hope you are suing the lady in the professional compliance board as well. Sounds like they need to do an investigation into her as well. Get the Feds involved. They violated your rights under color of authority, they forced you to go somewhere you didn’t want to go, they harassed and bullied you, they essentially ruined your life for no reason whatsoever. The jumped the gun. It’s a typical phuck up from a garbage detective. Make them pay.

    Well I got to say the Sun Sentinel finally wrote a good piece about the abuse of authority by out of control detectives at the Broward Sheriffs Office. Thank you for exposing the abuse of authority and corruption within the detective ranks at BSO. The story is long overdue and needed to be exposed. The light is finally shining in their out of control corrupt practices of bullying, illegal behavior, and harassment. Hopefully their constant violation of rights will lead to an outside federal investigation and a federal mandate.
