In a recent court hearing in Osceola County, Florida, three officers with the Kissimmee Police Department were caught giving false testimony about how and why they entered a hotel room to make drug-related arrests. A video of the incident surfaced and indicated that the officers did not initially observe any criminal activity, but rather went into the hotel room without a warrant or probable cause and then gave false testimony to cover their tracks. The officers involved in this case were working in the Kissimmee Police Department’s Street Crimes Unit. As a result of their false testimony, the officers were all put on leave following the incident and pending a thorough investigation. It was also reported that one of the officers involved has been fired more than once in the past from the Kissimmee Police Department for inappropriate actions.

I found the report of this incident very interesting because I recently represented a client for a Felony Marijuana charge, and one of the officers involved in giving false testimony in the Kissimmee case was a witness in my trial. After a hard-fought legal battle and trial, the jury found my client not guilty of a felony charge. The jury in my case was able to recognize the untruthful and false testimony of this officer, who appears to have a pattern of dishonesty. Although rare, this type of transgression by law enforcement does sometimes happen, and it has the potential to greatly impact your case if you are accused of a crime. If you have been arrested by the Kissimmee Police Department’s Street Crimes Unit, please call my office at (407) 415-9626 to speak with me about your case.
