Miami Police Used Fingerprints to Falsely Arrest Foreclosure Maintenance Man for Burglary

Most burglars wouldn’t bother cutting the lawn. But on an April day in 2014, that’s exactly what raised the suspicions of a woman in one Miami neighborhood. When she saw a strange man cutting the grass outside a home on SW Fourth Street, she called the homeowner to let him know.

A crime scene technician from the Miami Police Department soon showed up to dust the home for fingerprints, which an examiner later used to identify a suspect. Almost one year after the break-in, 25-year-old Alden Chase was arrested on charges of burglary and grand theft.

But it turns out Chase had a good reason to be at the house that day: He was working for a maintenance company hired by the bank, which had filed to foreclose the home. What’s more astonishing, his lawyer says, is that Chase had posted a notice directly on the front window indicating he’d been there that day to mow the lawn, change the locks, and secure the residence.

Apprised of the mistake, the State Attorney’s Office dropped the case. Earlier this month, Chase filed suit against the City of Miami for false arrest.

“It’s unique because of the obviousness of the situation,” says his attorney, Michael Garcia Petit. “They were aware there was litigation between the homeowner and the bank. If you or I as laypeople, not trained law enforcement, came up and observed this, we’d realize we’d probably want to call the maintenance company and the bank to ascertain whether they’d been on the property.”

The City of Miami attorney’s office did not respond to an email from New Times seeking comment on the case; in most instances, the office declines to comment on pending litigation.

Although the charges were dropped about five weeks after Chase’s arrest, court records indicate he spent four days in jail before he was able to bond out. His mug shot remains on the internet. As a result of the arrest, Garcia Petit says Chase lost his job and has been hard-pressed to find work.

“The problem he now encounters with each and every job is it shows that he has been arrested for burglary and grand theft, which is not a real good thing to have on your record,” the attorney says.

Though he’s waiting for more documentation, Garcia Petit says he still isn’t sure how Miami Police could have arrested Chase nearly a year after the burglary without so much as interviewing him or calling the maintenance company’s phone number from the notice posted outside the home.

“Throw common sense out, because common sense doesn’t work here,” he says. “What happens is they’re on autopilot and they don’t investigate. They arrested him, and I’ve still got no idea why.”

Cheap hotels in Miami, FL from $22 #find #hotels #miami


Hipmunk’s Best Hotels in Miami, FL

Planning Your Miami Visit

If you’re on the hunt for the best hotel deals in popular Miami neighborhoods, consider visiting during the slow season. Although Miami is a popular destination year-round, it does tend to see a decrease in visitors around summer. Unfortunately, this coincides with Atlantic hurricane season, so it’s definitely more of a risk to plan a huge vacation from June to November.

If you are nervous about booking an unfamiliar hotel, consider large companies like Marriott. Prices tend to be pretty stable and they have a large representation in Miami, across all their brands. You might find a Courtyard for a significantly better rate in a different neighborhood and you can trust it’s still a good hotel.

Where to Stay in Miami

Depending on what you are hoping to see and do in Miami, you can stay in a variety of neighborhoods. Some of the most popular neighborhoods include Downtown Miami, South Beach, Miami Beach, and Coconut Grove.

Downtown Miami is ideal if you want to be close to Miami’s financial and commercial centers, or are attending a convention. Several cheap hotels in Miami’s downtown area provide direct access to popular attractions like the James L. Knight International Center and Port of Miami. Check out Downtown Miami hotels like Courtyard by Marriott Miami Downtown. Miami River Inn, EPIC Global Suites, Aloft Miami – Brickell. and River Park Inn Suites.

Hotels in the South Beach area are definitely pricey, but when you compare the rates against a hostel in the same area, it’s only a few dollars more to book a private hotel room. Properties like Island House, Red South Beach. South Beach Plaza Hotel. The Penguin Hotel. and Hotel Chelsea are cheaper hotels in Miami’s South Beach.

Luxury Hotels for Less in Miami

With so many attractions and neighborhoods, you can spend weeks exploring Miami and only scratch the surface. Some of the most popular reasons people travel to Miami include its famous beaches, high-end shopping, the city’s culinary scene, business conferences, and annual events. Luxury hotels dot the shoreline of every high-end spot of Miami, so what is the secret for scoring one of these hotels for less?

One of the best deals in town is the Hyatt Regency Downtown Miami. A luxury business hotel, it’s centrally located and offers what you’ve come to expect from the Hyatt brand. Other tips include boutique, nonchain properties. Miami is filled with art deco and trendy small properties like the Mayfair Hotel Spa in Coconut Grove or South Beach’s Dream South Beach .

If your dates are flexible or you’re willing to book last minute, put in a hotel bid with Priceline. Many luxury hotels wind up with standing inventory and Priceline’s Name Your Own Price system can result in savings of 35 percent or more off published hotel rates.

Getting to and From Miami International Airport and Miami Airport Hotels

Many hotels in Miami offer complimentary shuttle service to and from Miami International Airport. Be sure to read details when doing a hotel search to factor in the need to rent a car or rely on public transportation. Some hotels have hefty overnight parking rates that can make a cheap hotel on par with some luxury hotels.

With Miami’s public transportation system, many people find they enjoy getting around Miami without worrying about traffic and parking charges associated with renting a vehicle. Miami’s public transportation system includes the Metrorail, Metrobuses, and a really cool Metromover that shuttles people around the Downtown Miami area at no cost. If you prefer private transportation, Miami International Airport has reliable taxi services, and Super Shuttle serves MIA as well.

If you prefer to stay near the Miami International Airport, there are plenty of cheap hotels nearby. If you have an early morning flight, consider booking the on-site Miami International Hotel Airport located on the departures level of Concourse E. Cheap hotels near Miami International Airport include Days Inn Miami Airport North and La Quinta Inn Miami Airport North. More upscale but still budget-friendly hotels near MIA include Embassy Suites Miami International, Sofitel Miami, Hilton Miami Airport. and Hilton Garden Inn Miami Airport.

Hostels in Miami

While there isn’t a huge selection of hostels in the Greater Miami area, there are a couple of options. Check out Bikini Hostel in South Beach to be right in the Miami Beach action. Check room types carefully as some days it is the same price for a private en suite as a nine-bed dorm.

Another hostel is the Miami Paradise Hostel in Downtown Miami. Often called MPD Bed Breakfast, this property is near the beach and minutes away from the Port of Miami and Little Haiti. Prepare meals in the communal kitchen to save more money and take advantage of amenities like free Wi-Fi.

Airbnb and Private Rentals in Miami

If you prefer private lodging and vacation home rentals, Miami has a huge selection of private homes and apartments available for short-term use. Not surprisingly, the prices range from just over what you would pay for a South Beach shared hostel to a penthouse significantly higher than luxury hotels brands like the Mandarin Oriental. With private Airbnb home rentals, you definitely need to be flexible with your dates in order to find the best deals. Don’t skip over the most popular neighborhoods and beaches, as those areas are filled with vacation rentals.

Helpful Resources for Planning Your Miami Visit

If you are unsure what you want to do on your Miami vacation, start by visiting Miami’s official visitor and tourism website. Once you have a better idea on what you want to see and do, you can narrow down which Miami neighborhoods interest you most.

Utilize travel-planning sites like Hipmunk for hotel and flight comparisons. If you are flying domestically, do a search of flight prices to both MIA and Fort Lauderdale airports, as FLL is not that far away from Greater Miami. American Airlines maintains a hub at MIA so look for the best selection of flights and connections with Oneworld alliance carriers.

If you are planning to rent a car, check Priceline to compare rental car deals. Check whether the rates are cheaper if you rent at the airport or from an off-site location. If airport locations have a glut of sitting vehicles, it’s not uncommon to snag a really cheap deal from Priceline. Just don’t forget that airport locations have additional fees and taxes automatically tacked on.

Look at the Miami International website for a detailed explanation of the various types of public transportation available, along with helpful maps and diagrams.

Consider VIP organized tours and excursions through premier tour services like Viator. If you prefer to explore on your own, look online to purchase the Go Miami Card. This all-inclusive attractions pass includes free admission to 33 of Miami’s best attractions, insider perks, and shopping discounts. Purchase a one-day, two-day, three-day, or five-day pass, or you can build your own customized pass, saving money on attractions of your choice.

Septic Tanks and Sewage Systems #septic #tanks #miami, #septic #tanks #and #sewage #systems


Septic Tanks and Sewage Systems

Septic Tanks and Sewage Systems

An estimated 2.3 million onsite sewage treatment and disposal systems (OSTDS) serve 31% of Florida residents and visitors. These systems discharge over 426 million gallons of treated effluent per day into the subsurface soil environment.

Bureau of Onsite Sewage

A person may not construct, repair, modify, abandon or operate an onsite sewage treatment and disposal system without first obtaining a permit approved by the Miami Dade County Health Department.
The OSTDS program is responsible for performing application reviews, conducting site evaluations, issuing permits, conducting inspections and complaint investigations associated with the construction, installation, repairs, abandonment of an onsite sewage treatment and disposal system for domestic sewage flow less than 10,000 gallons per day and commercial sewage waste not exceeding 5,000 gallons per day.
The OSTDS fulfills the mission of the Miami-Dade County Health department in ensuring that all systems regulated by the Department are sized, designed, constructed, repaired, modified and maintained properly in order to prevent groundwater contamination, surface water contamination and to preserve the public health.
The Department also permits and inspects all waste haulers, portable toilets companies, septic tank manufactures.
The Department created good partnership with the Miami-Dade County Building Department and all municipalities in Miami-Dade County to ensure that no building permit is issued where the property is to serve by a Septic tank system until a permit is obtained with the Health Department. In addition, a certificate of occupancy is not issued until there is evidence that the system has received final construction approval from the department.
Where a project does not meet our requirements, the applicant has the rights to apply for a variance.
For variances meetings and dates, all downloadable forms. Please refer to the state web site: http://www.doh.state.fl.us/

Ugh, Indecision.

It is so easy to make the same choice over and over and over again.

Making a bold decision and stepping into something new is almost impossibly difficult.

Usually we have to be chased by something achingly painful – like a viciously unhappy relationship. Or deep physical discomfort. Or a job we hate that does not pay us enough.

And even then, how many of us cling to the old ways, as if there was some kind of salvation there?

It is way easier to cling to the pain that is known, rather than to jump to the potential discomfort of something new.

Yes, even underworked, overloved, exaltedly paid you.

The question is-

Do you treat yours as such?

Many people ask me how I started, where I started, when I started, and why I started The School of Womanly Arts. When something is truly a calling, it has many beginning points in your life, as I am sure that many of you have seen inside your own lives.

They also laugh every day. Not to mention wriggle, crawl, bounce and flap.

Nothing like a woman.

Women are encouraged to avoid our own wail. We suppress our rage. We are taught to cut off from our unhappiness, overstep our discomfort and bypass our deep grief and sorrow.

Darren Rainey family seeks skin sample in gruesome prison shower death #family #attorney #miami

Darren Rainey family fights for skin sample in gruesome prison shower death

By Julie K. Brown

July 02, 2017 4:01 PM

A piece of evidence the size of a postage stamp is the focus of an upcoming court hearing in a federal civil rights lawsuit brought by the family of Darren Rainey, an inmate who died after he was locked by guards in a hot shower at Dade Correctional Institution.

Miami-Dade County officials have not complied with a subpoena requiring them to send a skin tissue specimen, gathered during Rainey’s autopsy, to an expert hired by Rainey’s family, court records show. County attorneys, citing a provision of the Florida Administrative Code, say that any inspection of tissue samples has to be done in the medical examiner’s office, where the examination would be supervised.

The expert hired by the family, Dr. Werner Spitz, is a nationally renowned forensic pathologist based in Michigan. Rainey family attorneys filed a subpoena in federal court on May 23 demanding that the county medical examiner produce certain specimens, or “re-cuts,” of tissue samples that at are embedded in paraffin in a glass slide to preserve them. The subpoena requests that the medical examiner send the re-cuts to Spitz in Michigan.

A video from inside Dade Correctional Institution, which was released by the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office on March 17, 2017, shows the moment prison guards respond to a medical emergency regarding inmate Darren Rainey.

Miami-Dade State Attorney Office

It is a common practice by forensic pathologists to request re-cuts of various autopsy slides in civil and criminal cases in order to verify the cause and manner of death, according to Spitz.

Miami-Dade’s medical examiner, Dr. Emma Lew, ruled Rainey’s death an accident. caused by a combination of factors, including his mental illness — he was severely schizophrenic — heart disease and “confinement to a shower.’’ Lew said there was no evidence that the shower was too hot, and that his skin — despite massive peeling — showed no sign of thermal injuries or burns.

Miami-Dade Medical Examiner Dr. Emma Lew.


Her findings have been questioned by multiple forensic pathologists, including Spitz, who has written what is widely considered the “bible of forensic pathology’’and has practiced for more than 60 years.

Spitz said can’t ever recall having to go to court to ask a judge to enforce a subpoena for a re-cut of a slide in a closed criminal case. Rainey’s case was closed in March, when Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernández Rundle wrote a memo concluding that there was insufficient evidence to prove that corrections officers turned the water up to scalding temperatures.

Dr. Werner Spitz

The shower was rigged so that the controls were in an adjacent mop closet accessible only to guards. Multiple inmates said that it had been used by officers in the prison’s mental health ward to punish unruly prisoners by exposing them to unbearably hot water and steam. Rainey was locked in the shower for more than 90 minutes, records show.

Spitz has worked on some of the most high-profile cases in U.S. history, including the deaths of President John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr. Nicole Brown Simpson and JonBenet Ramsey.

“What we are all trying to get to is the truth,’’ Spitz said. “Why can’t this be done like gentlemen and ladies? This is not necessary to go to court. This is something that’s done all the time.’’

The county also declined to permit an independent review of the slides by Dr. John Marraccini, the former medical examiner in Palm Beach, who offered to do it at no charge as a public service, given the questions that have been raised about Lew’s findings.

Dr. John Marraccini

Marraccini remains puzzled by the roadblocks placed by the county. He said he has been routinely mailed “re-cuts’’ from the Miami-Dade medical examiner’s office — and has never been forced to review them in their office.

“I get re-cuts mailed to me from Miami-Dade all the time and I’ve never had to come look at them under their supervision,’’ he said.

In their court motion, Rainey’s attorneys attached a copy of a letter from Darren J. Caprara, director of operations for the medical examiner, citing a provision of the Florida Administrative Code that he said prevented the office from sending out re-cuts. The provision, F.A.C. 11G-2.004, says “an independent examination and analysis of physical evidence and embedded tissue is permitted only under the supervision and control of the Medical Examiner.’’

Unlike statutes, which are passed by the Legislature, provisions of the administrative code are adopted by regulatory agencies.

Another expert, Dr. Michael Baden, has disputed Lew’s findings after reviewing the autopsy file and photographs, which show large swaths of Rainey’s skin peeling off his body, revealing areas that paramedics said appeared to be second- and third-degree burns.

Baden, who was on New York State’s prison medical review board for 40 years, said skin slippage such as that indicated in the photos is “hot water trauma” caused only by prolonged exposure to elevated water temperature.

Lew has said the damage involved post-mortem decomposition in a moist environment, and is not an indication that the shower water was inordinately hot.

“I have not heard of a medical examiner office ever refusing to send microscopic slide re-cuts to to the next of kin’s pathologist, especially after the criminal investigation was closed,’’ Baden said.

The motion on the slides is scheduled to be heard in federal court on July 7.

In the motion, Rainey’s attorney, Milton Grimes, contends that the re-cuts are part of routine discovery in any case — and that they are “easily divisible” and “will not affect the preservation or quality of the remaining tissue.’’

He also asserts that the rule cited by the county is not applicable because the case is being heard in federal court.

As part of a public records request, the Herald received more than 100 emails from the medical examiner’s office pertaining to the Rainey case. According to the emails, re-cuts of slides were provided to the FBI, which has expressed interest in the case.

The emails also revealed that the lead prosecutor in the case, Kathleen Hoague, didn’t know until a few months ago that a slide of Rainey’s skin tissue was even collected by the medical examiner. The state attorney’s office began investigating the case in 2014 — two years after Rainey’s death — when the Miami Herald began requesting public records.

Marraccini said that the slides are a critical part of any autopsy because they will show conditions that are not visible to the naked eye. He said the skin sample taken by Lew would be kept indefinitely and re-cuts do not affect the integrity of the original sample. Theoretically, hundreds of re-cuts can be taken from a single slide, he said.

“The real risk for the medical examiner of doing a re-cut is that you may discover something new that you didn’t see from the initial sample,’’ Marraccini said.

In the case of burns, a medical examiner would look for a cellular reaction that may or may not be present in the hours after a victim’s death.

“If you don’t see a reaction and you hang your hat on that and say it’s fresh and the result of post-mortem injuries — and then you take a re-cut and you see a reaction to the injury, then you have a problem. It shows that the injury is not post-mortem,’’ Marraccini said

“In our business, a medical examiner has to be flexible enough to change the cause and manner of death based on the information that becomes available,’’ he added. “In this case, there is no point of keeping specimens if they find excuses not to allow them to be analyzed.’’

The medical examiner’s office did not respond to a request for comment. The Herald also reached out to Miami-Dade’s mayor, Carlos A. Giménez, who oversees the medical examiner, but he was not available.

    Attorney Boris Lavent, the trusted name in Miami

    Boris graduated with honors from the University of Chicago Law School. For his undergraduate studies, Boris attended the University of Miami, where he received his Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration (majoring in Management and Legal Studies). Boris is a member of the Florida Bar, the American Bar Association, and the American Association for Justice. Lavent Law serves clients in Aventura, Sunny Isles Beach, Miami, and throughout all of Florida. Boris is fluent in English and Russian.

    It s Time to Get Someone in Your Corner

    Miami personal injury attorney Boris Lavent started Lavent Law with the goal of helping injured individuals protect their rights, rather than helping insurance companies protect their money. For this reason, Lavent Law only represents people, not corporations. Boris will aggressively fight to recover compensation from those responsible for causing an injury or death.

    The Insurance Company is Not On Your Side

    Even though you have been faithfully paying your insurance premiums, when it comes to paying for your accident, the insurance company will be focused on limiting your compensation so they can increase their profits. Without an attorney, you will be going up against the insurance company and their attorneys. This can lead to disastrous results where you may be taken advantage of just for not knowing your full rights.

    An Experienced Attorney Can Help Maximize Your Compensation

    A typical accident victim doesn’t know what is fair when it comes to an insurance settlement. For most, it can be difficult to reasonably estimate what an injury will cost over a lifetime. This means that most people are inadvertently leaving money on the table. Miami Car Accident Lawyer Boris Lavent has the experience to recognize when an offer is low and will work to maximize the value of your claim by gathering the evidence necessary to prove the full extent of your injuries and how they are impacting your daily life, not just today, but also well into the future.

    You Need to Prove Negligence

    New Advances in LASIK Eye Surgery – You Won’t Believe Your Eyes


    New Advances in LASIK Eye Surgery – You Won’t Believe Your Eyes
    Estate Magazine
    September, 2006
    By Gail M. Lassner

    For those who have considered LASIK eye surgery in the past, there is no time like the present to learn more about what Cory M. Lessner, M.D. describes as the world’s best kept secret.

    Dr. Lessner is the owner and Medical Director of Millennium Laser Eye Centers in Sunrise. For years, he has shared the secret – how precise, painless and easy LASIK eye surgery is – with professionals whose job performance depends upon superior vision. He has treated personalities such as Dwayne The Rock Johnson and former NFL coach and Fox TV News Anchor Jimmy Johnson, as well as news anchors like Dwight Lauderdale. As the official LASIK eye surgeon of the four major sports team in South Florida and now the Miami Hurricanes, he has also treated many professional athletes; Jeff Conine, Roberto Luongo, A.J. Burnett and Wade Smith to name a few. With the utmost confidence, they have chosen Dr. Lessner to give them the gift of sight.

    Dr. Lessner is one of the few surgeons in the country whose practice is limited to vision corrective procedures and the only doctor in South Florida to offer treatment with the most accurate and up-to-date treatment available in laser technology – the Allegretto Wavelight Laser in combination with Intralase technology.

    The first step in LASIK, Dr. Lessner explained, is the creation of a flap which until recently, has been performed with a blade or microkeratome. This twenty second bladeless procedure now creates the flap with less pressure to the eye, and virtually eliminates the risk of complications associated with the creation of the flap. Intralase also allows many patients who were not previously considered candidates, due to thinner corneas, the ability to have the procedure because it is able to create a thinner and more precise flap.

    The second step in LASIK is the actual laser vision correction treatment. The AllegrettoWavelight laser designed in Germany is 3 -10 times faster than any other laser on the market and offers potential candidates a wider range of treatment than was previously available with greater statistical accuracy. said Dr. Lessner, adding that, There are more risks associated with the daily usage of contact lenses than with the surgery itself, provided that patients are in the right hands. The Allegretto laser was the first laser to be granted simultaneous approval by the FDA for the treatment of nearsightedness and farsightedness, with or without astigmatism, and has recently gained FDA approval for treatment of pure astigmatism.

    Despite having performed over 15,000 refractive surgeries over the past fifteen years, Dr. Lessner never tires of witnessing patients who, after these brief out procedures, sit up in amazement when they are able to see the clock on the wall and the faces of their loved ones viewing their procedure through an observation window. With these newest technologies, 50% of my patients say that they now see better than they ever did with contact lenses or glasses. Dr. Lessner said.

    Dr. Lessner’s commitment to helping others does not end when he leaves the office. With equal enthusiasm, he and his wife, Maria are extremely dedicated to giving back to the community that serves them. Among the numerous community organizations that they support are the Joe DiMaggio’s Children’s Fund, the Weston and Fort Lauderdale Rotary Clubs, the Panthers Foundation Charities as well as several local religious organizations. Maria also dedicates much of her time to volunteering in their children’s school where she chairs and coordinates the Meet the Masters art mania program.
