2 Martin County and one 1 former commissioner charged with public records violations

Martin County, Fla-Two Martin County commissioners, and one former Martin County commissioner were brought in Tuesday for violating public records law.

An Assistant State Attorney filed an “information” outlining charges . . .
no warrant, no arrest. The charge is for a “noncriminal infraction.”

The Martin County Sheriff’s Office says Commissioner Ed Fielding and former commissioner Anne Scott each face two criminal misdemeanor charges. The charges are failure to allow inspection of public records.

Commissioner Sarah Heard is facing a charge for failure of a public official to respond to a public-records request.

The charge stems from the county’s civil suit with Lake Point rock quarry. It’s a non-criminal infraction punishable by a fine of up to $500. Heard is accused of not producing, and possibly destroying, emails pertinent to the Lake Point case. Heard then claimed her personal Yahoo account was hacked, and all emails deleted.

The charges all go back to the county’s lawsuit with Lake Point rock quarry, which sued the county in 2013 for alleged contract violation and violating state public records law.
