INCREDIBLE FRESH HEARING-trx PKG


*TAKEPKG*

Lee Hollander/ attorney 214759 well if I'm right about what I'm looking at, a lot of the cases will probably be dropped. 8

LEE HOLLANDER IS ONE OF A HANDFULL OF ATTORNEYS REPRESENTING THE MORE THAN 1-HUNDRED PEOPLE ARRESTED IN THE RAID AT INCREDIBLE FRESH.

DONALD DAY IS REPRESENTING 64 OF THEM- HE SAYS THEY ALL PLEADED NOT GUILTY AND ARE STICKING OUT THE LEGAL PROCESS.

213308 sure they're all in the area between Ft Myers, Lehigh. 5

BOTH ATTORNEYS SAY THEY'RE WORKING ANGLES THAT COULD GET THE CHARGES DROPPED- STARTING WITH OTHER ONGOING CASES, THAT DAY SAYS COULD PLAY INTO THE OUTCOME OF THIS ONE.

Donald Day 213237 because if those other cases issue rulings that say they may not be able to charge these people these charges could all go away. So it depends on the ruling of those other cases. 9

Lee Hollander 21:46:26 if you look at the charging document the date is the day that they did the raid and I don't believe that's the correct date for any of these people. 12

OUTSIDE THE COURTHOUSE - What we wanted/ JUSTICE/ when / NOW! - THE FLORIDA IMMIGRATION COALITION ALONG WITH OTHER GROUPS USED THE ARRAIGNMENT DATE TO RALLY IN SUPPORT OF THE PRODUCE WORKERS.

Isabel Sosa

Fl immigrant coalition

213821 a lot of the workers don't even know what happened to them they're getting charges against them that they don't even understand./ is that what they're telling you??/ yes that's what they're telling me that they don't know what's going on. 12

THEY WANT THE CHARGES DROPPED.

HOLLANDER SAYS THE WORKERS COULD FACE PRISON TIME IN THE U-S…

214659 But that's not really likely based on the charges and the way the sentencing guidelines work. 7

HE SAYS INSTEAD… DEPORTATION IS THE BIGGEST CONSEQUENCE.

IN COLLIER COUNTY, SNK, NBC-2. Return to index of stories...
