Miami Cop Maldonado-Dick Sentenced In Drug Protection Racket (PODCAST)

Maldonado-Dick was pretty lucky to get the plea deal he got, especially since there’s ample video evidence available to secure a conviction, including undeniable evidence that the cop used his service weapon in commission of the crime as you can see below.

Jose Maldonado-Dick had no idea the buyer was an informant and he was being watched by police too.

Now, the 7-year veteran ex-Miami cop will be spending the next three years in state prison, followed by a three year probation.

He’s been held without bond since October 30th, 2014.

Maldonado-Dick was busted earlier that year after protecting two transactions, one for three kilos and another for 7 kilos which went down at a local McDonalds near the city’s hot Wynwood neighborhood.

We interviewed Miami Police union boss Lt. Javier Ortiz about bad cops in his department last year and Maldonado-Dick was one of those whose name came up.

Ortiz is best known for running his chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police, and stealing [**national headlines with his ‘War on Beyonce’ while the Miami Police department was placed under a strict Federal monitoring**](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2016/02/19/miami-police-accept-dojs-federal-monitoring-until-2020-fop-uses-beyonce-as-distraction/) agreement for the next four years.

“Geo Nunez, was trafficking cocaine, in as far as he was guarding people who were doing that. There was another cop by the name of Maldonado-Dick. Well that guy, he was also doing the same thing. He took a thousand dollar bribe in order to protect drug dealers. So, we didn’t give any of those people legal defense.”

Actually, it was $1900.

“You won’t hear me say a peep about them,” said Lt. Ortiz, “except that they’re bad cops and had no business being here.”

Now, the Miami-Dade’s state attorney’s office allowed Maldonado-Dick to reduce two felony charges of armed cocaine trafficking – which could carry a life sentence – into charges of attempted cocaine trafficking, which is just a second-degree felony.

The 37-year old Maldonado-Dick was one of the rare law enforcement officers denied bail, before sentencing but now he’ll get time served since then credited towards his sentence.

The ex-cop Miami prosecutors called “too dangerous” to live in his own community on bail, will be out of jail in a mere 15 months.

Maybe sooner if he behaves.

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.
