Crestview police officer corruption trial
CRESTVIEW -- The corruption trial of former Crestview police officer Joey Floyd is set to begin in four weeks.
But the state will not be prosecuting Floyd's grand jury indictment.
They agreed to set it aside so they could accuse him of additional crimes.
Laura Hussey "Fifteen months ago, Joey Floyd was the second in command here at the Crestview Police Department. He was fired after a Grand Jury indicted him for racketeering"
The accusations included excessive force, intimidating fellow officers, and soliciting sex for benefits.
Pam Pursley "I've heard as we call it here through the grapevine some stories about those kind of things that went on here"
Melanie Mitchell "They always quick to say oh he did this and that, but did they walk in his shoes that mile?"
Since the beginning, Floyd has insisted he's innocent.
June 12, his lawyer filed a motion to dismiss, saying among other things that the allegations didn't comply with the Florida racketeering statute.
