The latest on my appeal



On June 10th, a trio of Miami-Dade Circuit Court judges reviewed my appeal brief and determined that I need to get the entire trial transcribed in order to proceed with the appeal.

I now have until July 10th to complete this process or else the case will be dismissed.

In my appeal brief, I had turned in the portions of the transcript that pertain to my argument in order to save money because it costs five dollars for each page transcribed. Each page represents a minute of the trial and the trial lasted for two days, ending at midnight last June.

So it’s going to cost me at least $2,500 to get the rest of the trial transcribed, which means I will fall even more into debt. But at this point, there is no turning back.

The truth is, getting the entire trial transcribed will work even more in my favor because it will reveal the huge contradictions between all three officers who testified.

The judges who will review the appeal are Victoria Platzer, Robert N. Scola, Jr. and Gill S. Freeman.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.

Please make a donation below or click on side tab to learn more about our mission.
