A previous Florida investigator has been busted for forcing a lady into having intercourse with him to get her charges dropped, as indicated by specialists.
Miami legal counselor Juan Mercado, 29, was an associate state law when he told the lady accused of household battery that he would “present her defense leave” in return for intimate, as indicated by a discharge about his capture.
Mercado was not the doled out investigator, however, he got to records and gave data and counsel to the lady, as indicated by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
“Mercado had a physical association with a lady in return for offering to help with her pending criminal case,” the office stated, without enumerating when it occurred.
Mercado — who had since left the State Attorney’s Office and opened a private practice in Miami — was busted Wednesday on gift charges.
Miami-Dade’s prison records show that Mercado has posted bond, however, the sum wasn’t accessible. It wasn’t clear on the off chance that he had a lawyer who could remark for his sake.
