Problems at Lakeland Police Department continue
Posted by: Thomas Grajek  | On 16th July, 2013

The ongoing problems and investigation into the Lakeland Police Department continue.  The Ledger reported today that the State Attorney for the 10th Judicial Circuit issued a “No Confidence’ letter for two LPD officers.  You can read the article here:

That means that the prosecutor’s office will no longer accept testimony from Sgt. Raymond Lloyd and Officer David Edds.  These were the officers on my LPD case a few weeks ago where I brought out the problems with the DUI reports and how the police reports were sworn to under oath.  Usually, that means that the State Attorney’s office will not go forward with any cases in which these officers are the sole officer giving testimony.  For some individuals, that may mean criminal charges are dropped against them if the testimony is critical to the case.

The investigation is still ongoing.  Hopefully, the thorough job the State Attorney’s office is doing will result in restoring the public’s confidence in the Lakeland Police Department.

In addition, two deputies with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office were also fired today based upon their misconduct.

If you have been arrested and are looking for an attorney to stand up and fight for you in court call me!

I have just moved to the Tampa area. I was intoduced to Tom after being arrested for a DUI. Within minutes of being bonded out Tom came to my place of employment with all needed documents to "get the ball rolling". He always kept me informed on my case and when the time came for my hearing, I plead guilty to wreckless and had no fines and very little commuity service. Thomas Grajek is a great attorney and I feel he would be a valuable assett in anyone's defense.
