Trial of Liberty County, Florida Sheriff Nick Finch Begins

The trial of Liberty County, Florida Sheriff Nick Finch began yesterday; he was illegally suspended without pay for supporting the Second Amendment.

Freedom of speech, federalism, the right to keep and bear arms, and the right of the people to govern themselves through free elections are under assault in Florida, and the attorney general and governor of the state are on the wrong side.

On October 29, at 9:00 a.m. the trial of Sheriff Nick Finch (shown in photo) began in Florida. Although the judge and the prosecuting attorney in the case acknowledged earlier this month the weaknesses of the charges against Finch, the judge denied the sheriff’s motion to dismiss the case.

Fortunately, the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA) is coming to the aid of Sheriff Finch, establishing a legal defense fund to help defray the mounting legal costs associated with defending himself from these baseless charges.

In an e-mail to The New American, Sheriff Richard Mack, the founder of the CSPOA, explained the urgency of the situation facing Sheriff Finch:

If Sheriff Finch is found guilty in this case, the most unjustified and frivolous trial in history, then we are all in trouble and could be suspects in any incident! This is one case that should have never gone to trial and for the AG and Governor to actually push it to trial makes me wonder about their intelligence or something extremely sinister has to be afoot!

Something sinister indeed.

The facts of the events that led to the persecution and prosecution of a duly elected sheriff are an outrage to friends of liberty and free elections.

Nick Finch, the duly elected sheriff of Liberty County, Florida, has been run out of office, suspended without pay, and arrested for refusing to deprive a citizen in his jurisdiction (Floyd Parrish) of his Second Amendment rights.

In June, Finch was arrested after being charged with misconduct based on his alleged altering and destroying of official court documents. Finch, 50, was booked into the county jail but was later released on his own recognizance.

Sources close to the investigation recount the events of the night before Sheriff Finch was arrested.

At about 11:00 p.m., agents showed up at the jail with search warrants to seize the arrest records. After seizing the records, they subpoenaed employees.
