Florida Sheriffs Association Silent On Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno’s Fraud

Pinterest WhatsApp

I have exposed Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno’s fraud that he has perpetrated on the people of his county both in his law enforcement career and his education.  I have reached out to a variety of authorities including the governor’s office, the attorney general’s office, Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) and the Florida Sheriffs Association (FSA).  Though I have sought comment on the documentation concerning Sheriff Marceno for a week FSA simply cannot take the time to provide a comment on the matter.  Just as government agencies in Florida, the FSA has failed to provide a response to the documentation.

In my attempts to get FSA’s reaction to the evidence that demonstrates that Sheriff Marceno has used the public’s website at http://www.sheriffleefl.org/ to perpetuate the fraud that he is “on track to graduate with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice” when the truth is that he has not attended Florida Gulf Coast University, which is where he claims to be making this achievement, since 2004.  At that time, he only took about 3 months of classes and I have been unable to even determine if he actually attended those classes nor what his grades were.

I have also provided their public relations company, The Moore Agency, with the articles containing the documentation as this is where I was directed for comment by FSA.

The contact there, Ms. Nanette Schimpf, was kind enough to return my call I made on Sunday.  On Monday, she returned the call and gave me her email address so that I could provide the documentation, which I did in the following two articles.

I also contacted another individual from Moore by the name of Logan Lewkow.

This was the response I received from her on Tuesday.

“I saw you called my cell and Logan’s cell but we are both in a committee meeting at the capitol. I will follow up tonight when I leave here (in nearly two hours) to see if we have any answers for you). Our leadership team does not believe there is a 12 month minimum requirement, so I am asking Gretl Plessinger from FDLE what their requirements are as that is their area of jurisdiction. “

I had to clarify that I was not attempting to state that a sheriff either has to have police academy training nor if he is from out of state that he must have completed twelve months of full time sworn officer service.  I was referring to the fact that Marceno, according to all documentation I can find, was never a full time sworn officer for twelve months in New York, where he was from.

She appreciated the clarification, but overall there was never a comment provided on the documentation on behalf of FSA.

In fact, when Wednesday rolled around and I continued to pursue a comment from Moore on behalf of the FSA, I was told they were in the “midst of legislative session here in Florida and a several day turnaround, if we have anything to offer, is not uncommon. We are working on critical public safety issues with a short runway as session ends next week.”

I was then directed back to FSA and Matt Dunagan, who Ms. Schimpf communicated to me was her boss.

Several calls to Mr. Dunagan have gone without a response.

Perhaps the FSA should consider carefully the seriousness of this issue and render a statement on the documentation that Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno’s education fraud and the clear misrepresentation of his prior law enforcement service, which renders all the years he portrayed himself as a police officer or sheriff’s deputy null and void because he does not meet the state of Florida’s laws for him to wear the uniform.  By the way, that would be referred to as impersonating a police officer, which is a felony in the Sunshine State.

They seem just fine in also advancing the fraud of Sheriff Marceno’s dress as their website states concerning his career:

“Collier County Sheriff’s Office, 10 years; Lee County Sheriff’s Office, 5 years; appointed Sheriff of Lee County, 2018.”

As I’ve pointed out before, the stripes on his left sleeve each represent three years of service and that is supposed to be specific to the particular sheriff’s office that he is at.  While FSA has him listed as being at Lee County for only five years, that is nowhere near the eighteen with which he is attempting to deceive the people.  For more on that, click here.  

Even if you put all those years mentioned together by FSA, you would not come to eighteen years.  Yet, FSA doesn’t seem to have a problem with that, his fraudulent education claims nor his failure to follow the law regarding out of state police officers becoming police officers in the state of Florida.  If they do, they certainly aren’t in any hurry to comment on it to The Washington Standard.

And this is the man charged with arresting a former girlfriend, Deanna Williams, who he begged to murder his own unborn child.  Does anyone have any doubt that if Ms. Williams is arrested by this individual that she will be safe, or worse, make it out of the Lee County jail alive?
