Florida Today: Thumbs Down for State Attorney Candidate Andrew Warren
Florida Today’s editorial board on candidate Andrew Warren who is running to be Hillsborough County’s next State Attorney in 2016: “Thumbs down” and his mess of a prosecution. Read Story here. According to the editorial piece, one of two scenarios in the federal case Andrew Warren prosecuted and left unfinished to run for office, “Either some disorganized feds failed to get their man. Or they negligently strung along an innocent defendant who suffered great expense and public scorn.”
Andrew Warren has been invited on Florida You Judge for a candid interview in order to address questions about this federal case and candidacy. Will Warren accept the invite to address Hillsborough County voters about his qualifications in seeking to be elected to an incredibly important post? State attorneys are entrusted to protect the public from harm (including unjustified prosecutions) by seeking to bring to justice only those who are truly guilty of violating the law therefore any candidates seeking this position should be open to being fully vetted and scrutinized.

MARK OBER’S OFFICE ISSUES PRESS RELEASE ADDRESSING WARREN’S FALSE STATEMENTS
This press release was issued in response to Warren’s recent allegations after a recent candidate forum between him and current incumbent Mark Ober. Warren recently alleged that Ober “criticized” a child victim in a child sex case that Ober is currently prosecuting. The defendant in the case has been charged with sixteen counts and faces a maximum of 230 years if found guilty. Criminal cases that are pending should not be tried in the public by media accounts but by a jury of a defendant’s peers who are able to review admissible evidence in the case. Stephen Romine, the defendant’s attorney reacted in a recent article to Warren’s apparent attempt to politicize this sensitive case, “The attempt to sensationalize this case for political gain is completely inappropriate,” Romine said, “and to make allegations that are untrue is reckless.”
