City manager Ralph Bowers admitted to having an affair with a city employee, paying her money, medical bills and buying her a boat, according to an investigation from the Lake County Sheriff's Office.

The State Attorney's Office is reviewing the results of the criminal investigation and expects to make a decision next week.

So what happened to the "sexual battery?" Maybe those pesky bloggers was right again.

Sheriff Gary Borders might as well admit to "having an affair with a with his employee" Scott Stone and Lee Piper and a slew of predecessors because itís a fact and even Scottie introduced Gary to a temporary neighbor back in July as his gay partner. Maybe Gary is ashamed of Scottie but not the other way around! Paying him money? Yep! Gary gave Scott Stone a 10% raise (more than the others) with our tax dollars. What about that Gray pick up truck did Gary give that to Scott Stone or just let him drive it?

Gary Borders likes to give away pick up trucks. Remember it was jail inmate Andrew Washburn that told everyone that then Jail Major Gary Borders give him a Toyota pick up truck to keep his mouth shut about the jail sexcapades. How did that work for Gary Borders? Not to well but it sure worked for Andrew Washburn. Gary Borders got him off out of state parole five years early.

What in the hell will happen to Gary Borders when he runs out of favors to do for all his victims and they come to realize that simply being abused by a man in his position is a lawsuit of all lawsuits.

Every last one of these victims is a potential millionaire. And they donít need to use the excuse they are afraid of retaliation or they canít find a lawyer, as a previous article on this website reminded us all 2013 is going to be the year of the lawsuits and Orlando lawyers will sue their own grandmothers!

Why in hell wasn't this man arrested immediately upon the victim filing a report with law enforcement with an attached affidavit asking for prosecution. Even this whitewashed LCSO report depicts both multi-rapes and threats of violence against the victim by this man.

Report released in criminal investigation involving Fruitland Park City Manager

Newly released documents release new details about the criminal investigation involving Fruitland Park City Manager Ralph Bowers.

The Lake County Sheriff's Office was looking into claims that Bowers sexually assaulted a city employee.

According to reports, it all started when a city employee started cleaning Bowers' house on the side for extra money, but she told investigators Bowers forced her into having sex and paid her when it was over. It went on for nearly two years, according to investigators.

Documents show she was afraid to say anything because she said Bowers threatened her.

Bowers forced her to have sex with him at least five times, according to deputies, and she said it happened at his house and in his office.

Detectives said the woman told them Bowers would usually pay her $20 to $50 for sex and according to investigators, Bowers told her "I'm the man" and "the boss" and "I can have you fired."

The report also shows that when interviewed by the police chief, Bowers admitted to having sex with the woman and confessed to giving her money, paying her medical bills and giving her a boat.
Bowers was placed on leave after the allegations surfaced.

The city is planning to hold a public hearing in the coming weeks and will decide whether to fire him.
