FROM THE OFFICE OF STATE REPRESENTATIVE HALSEY BESHEARS
In a continued attempt to make certain that former Sheriff Nick Finch receives a fair and unbiased trial, Rep. Halsey Beshears (R-Monticello) delivered a letter on Friday to Governor Rick Scott asking for his strongest consideration in executing his duties as Governor of the State by assigning a new prosecuting attorney.
This factor is paramount in the former Sheriff receiving a fair trial according to some citizens of Liberty County. A recent radio talk show sparked this awareness and telephone calls and emails began to pour into the office of State Representative Halsey Beshears (R-Monticello).
“We are concerned with each and every citizen being offered fair and just treatment in any situation they are facing. Former Sheriff Finch deserves a balanced and impartial trial, no less”, said Rep. Beshears.
There has been a great deal of public opinion on this particular case. Rep. Beshears continued in his letter to state that a full investigation was critical and to allow anything other than deliberate focus on facts would be inexcusable.
