Ron DeSantis Had Thrown Another Woke Prosecutor Out On Their…

Monique Worrell, the state attorney for the Ninth Judicial Circuit, has been placed on administrative leave by Florida’s Republican governor Ron DeSantis due to negligence and incompetence.

DeSantis alleged that Worrell, who received support from an organization connected to Democrat billionaire George Soros, had permitted murders, other violent felons, and deadly drug traffickers to receive incredibly reduced terms and escape the full repercussions of their criminal behavior.

The executive order that resulted in her suspension cites a number of policies and practices that include avoiding minimum mandatory sentences for gun crimes, minimum mandatory sentences for drug trafficking offenses, allowing juvenile offenders to avoid serious charges and incarceration altogether, avoiding valid and applicable sentencing enhancements, limiting charges for child pornography, and seeking to withhold of judgment in circumstances that are not permitted by Florida law.

The office of DeSantis provided a long list of examples where her policies or actions had “more egregious results in action.” The following were a few instances:

  • “Just this past weekend, Worrell was at the center of a major controversy. Daton Viel was arrested in March 2023 for sexual battery on a minor, as well as Lewd and Lascivious Molestation. That arrest was made while Viel was on probation for another offense – that probation began in February 2023. Viel was still let out on bond and thereafter shot two Orlando Police Officers.”
  • “In November 2022, 17-year-old Lorenzo Larry shot and killed his pregnant girlfriend, De’Shayla Ferguson. Larry had previously been arrested in May 2022 on several charges, including carrying a concealed firearm, possession of a firearm on school property, and criminal possession of a firearm by a minor. But he was released after all these arrests. Worrell’s office did not act on any of these charges until after he killed his girlfriend and their unborn child.”
  • “In February 2023, 19-year-old Keith Moses shot and killed a cameraman and a 9-year-old girl. He had a long history of arrests as a juvenile, including aggravated battery, assault, and grand theft. As recently as November 2021, he was arrested for drug possession, but no charges were pursued.”
  • “In October 2022, a minor was arrested on first-degree murder charges with a firearm. The shooting was captured on video. One month later, Worrell’s office inexplicably filed a petition to reduce the charge to firearm possession. He was placed on probation.”

At a news conference, the governor announced that he had appointed Judge Andrew Bain to succeed Worrell in his role as State Attorney for the Ninth Judicial Circuit.

DeSantis’ action comes almost exactly one year after he fired State Attorney Andrew Warren of the 13th Judicial Circuit, another awakened Soros prosecutor, from his position.
