Flagler Deputy Sheriff Alters Search Warrant
Faces No Criminal Charges And Little Disciplinary Action

Is There A Separate Criminal Justice System For Criminal Justice Professionals?

January 9, 2014
"Police throughout the United States have been caught fabricating, planting, and manipulating evidence to obtain convictions where cases would otherwise be very weak. Some authorities regard police perjury as so rampant that it can be considered a "subcultural norm rather than an individual aberration" of police officers."
Dale Carpenter - Flagrant Conduct: The Story Of Lawrence v. Texas

Is A Badge A License To Lie?
Is There Too Much Tolerence For Police Misconduct?

According to a Daytona Beach News-Journal article, in 2012, Flagler County Sheriff Deputy Greg Nunziato altered a search warrant. Due to these alterations, Circuit Court Judge Raul Zambrano granted a defense motion to suppress the evidence obtained via that search warrant. Approximately a month later the State Attorney's office dropped the case against the criminal defendant.

The dropping of the criminal case against the criminal defendant is understandable. Since the evidence collected in the search warrant is now suppressed, it's logical to conclude that the State Attorney no longer has a prosecutable case against the criminal defendant.

What is harder to understand, is why the State Attorney did NOT open a criminal investigation / prosecution on Deputy Nunziato ? Are falsifying a public document (F.S. 839.13) or making false official statements (F.S. 837.06) still crimes in the State of Florida? The last time we checked, they most certainly were.

According to the attached News Journal article, criminal defense attorney, Michael Lambert was somewhat surprised that Deputy Nunziato was not criminally investigated / charged.

Different Rules For Police Officers?

Attorney Lambert infers within the News Journal article, that our local criminal justice system has two sets of rules, one for us everyday citizens, and one for the enforcers of the law. VolusiaExposed fully supports the opinion of Mr. Lambert - if you have any doubts, might we suggest that you search any selected week of arrest reports for Volusia County - you will find numerous individuals charged and prosecuted for similar violations. If that still doesn't convince you - then lie to a police officer or judge, and see if you are not quickly arrested and prosecuted. If that is too much of a walk on the wild side for you, then just ask the soon to be former wife of George Zimmerman.

Regardless Of A Criminal Prosecution:
Did Deputy Nunziato Violate FDLE
Moral Character Standards?

According to FDLE Moral Character Standards (FAC11B-27.0011), if a law enforcement officer violates F.S. 839.13 and / or F.S. 837.06, (whether criminally prosecuted or not) - the Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission (CJSTC / FDLE) can take disciplinary action against his / her Florida law enforcement certification.

As stated above (see officer misconduct section - above right), officer misconduct is usually reported by the employing agency to the CJSTC via a CJSTC 61 and / or CJSTC 78 forms.

However, according to CJSTC mandates (above right), the CJSTC will also review allegations of officer misconduct that were highlighted in newspaper articles.

With this in mind - VolusiaExposed.Com sent the following email to FDLE / CJSTC Research and Training Specialist, Kandace Zachary , asking her to review the concerns detailed in the News Journal article regarding Deputy Nunziato.

We will let you know, when and if, we hear anything from FDLE / CJSTC. Stand by to stand by.
