Bruce Fuller violates release agreement and why he was put back in jail last July.....Please read all of it " Scram violation" Bruce was released and still screwed it up !1

v. Case No. 5D13-2316
Opinion filed July 3, 2013
Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus,
A Case of Original Jurisdiction.
Adam H. Sudbury, of Sudbury Law, PL,

Bruce D. Fuller petitions this court for a writ of habeas corpus, alleging the trial
court erred when it revoked his pretrial release without notice and the benefit of a
hearing. Fuller seeks the following relief:(a) an order that the original conditions of
release be immediately reinstated, or (b) that he be immediately brought before the trial
court for an immediate hearing to determine conditions of pretrial release. Although we
do not find that Fuller is entitled to immediate release or an order that the original
conditions of release be reinstated, we grant relief, in part, and hold that petitioner is
entitled to notice and an opportunity to be heard in the trial court.
Fuller was charged by indictment with first degree murder, a capital offense, and
sexual battery. He was granted pretrial release on $50,000 bond with, among other
conditions, GPS and SCRAM (alcohol) monitoring. He was also ordered not to
consume or possess alcohol. Two months after being granted pretrial release, the trial
court received a "SCRAM violation report" indicating a "confirmed consumption of
alcohol." After receiving the violation report, the trial court, sua sponte, entered an order
revoking Fuller's pretrial release and set no bond on the warrant ordering him into
custody. When Fuller turned himself in on the warrant, his attorney filed an emergency
motion to reinstate conditions of release. The motion was denied without a hearing.
At the outset, we note that Fuller is charged with a capital offense and thus, is not
entitled to pretrial release if the proof of guilt is evident or the presumption is great. See
Art. I,§ 14, Fla. Const.; Fla. R. Crim. P. 3.131(a). However, the trial court may, in its
discretion, grant pretrial release and did so here. Fuller claims that because he was
initially granted pretrial release, he was entitled to notice and an opportunity to be heard
before the trial court revoked his pretrial release and ordered him held without bond.
We agree.1 Although breaching a condition of the bond originally set by the court
forfeits a defendant's right to continued release under the terms of that bond, it does not
forfeit the constitutional right to bail altogether. State v. Paul, 783 So. 2d 1042, 1050
1 We decline to issue a blanket ruling requiring a hearing in every case where the
trial court is presented with evidence that a defendant has violated a condition of pretrial
(Fla. 2001). A refusal to readmit a defendant to any bail at all must be subject to the
limitations of section 907.041, the pretrial detention statute. Id. Accordingly, we grant
the writ and quash the order denying Fuller's motion to reinstate conditions of release,
and remand for hearing on the motion, at which time the trial court shall

This is about the Judge assigned to this Murder Trial
Judge Shea reprimanded for intemperate conduct
For losing his temper in court and making rude comments, some with sexist overtones, Ninth Circuit Judge Timothy Shea will receive a public reprimand, write letters of apology, and continue his mental health treatment.
That sanction was detailed by the Florida Supreme Court in its March 14 per curium opinion in Case No. SC11-1067, Inquiry Concerning a Judge, No. 10-265, Re: Timothy R. Shea.
The investigative panel of the Judicial Qualifications Commission determined that probable cause did not exist to proceed on six of the 11 allegations in the original notice of formal charges in 2010. Initially, the Supreme Court had planned to impose a 60-day suspension without pay, as well as a public reprimand. After the JQC hired a special counsel to further investigate the charges, the investigative panel and Judge Shea entered into a second stipulation, and the JQC recommended that he not be suspended because of “substantial positive efforts voluntarily taken by Judge Shea to remedy his behavior.”
Judge Shea did not contest the following allegations in the notice of amended formal charges:
* In 2007, Assistant State Attorney Sarah Freeman was sitting in the jury box with two other attorneys, making notes on her pretrial docket, while Judge Shea addressed a matter that was not hers. When Judge Shea saw Freeman shake her head, he got up from his seat, stood behind his chair, and screamed loudly at her for what he perceived as disrespectful conduct.
* In 2007, during an off-the-record sidebar argument by Assistant State Attorney Camelia Coward regarding a plea to the bench, Judge Shea remarked to the opposing attorney:“Do you know what I do when my wife and I disagree? I just let her talk. I find that it is best just to let her talk until she’s finished.” Judge Shea then indicated that, once she is finished, you can do what you want anyway.
* In 2009, Judge Shea sentenced a defendant charged with trafficking in hydromorphone to the minimum mandatory sentence, without the defendant’s attorney present. When the defendant objected, Judge Shea told the defendant’s father that, if he had any questions, he could go upstairs to the courtroom where the defense lawyer was appearing before another judge.
* In State v. Bullock, Judge Shea granted a judgment of acquittal on one of the counts of an information alleging possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. That count had been severed for a separate trial from another count of the information charging the defendant with grand theft of a motor vehicle. At the subsequent trial call in 2010, when Assistant State Attorney Stephen Brown announced his intention to proceed on the remaining count, Judge Shea mistakenly believed the state did not have a good faith basis to proceed on that charge. Judge Shea became visibly angry and reprimanded the prosecutor in open court, saying his duty was to act in an ethical manner and to follow his oath as an attorney, rather than merely follow office policy guidelines of the state attorney’s office. Judge Shea then ordered him into the jury room, where he continued to berate the attorney’s ethics. After realizing his mistake, Judge Shea apologized.
Judge Shea agreed that “these repeated actions constitute conduct unbecoming a judicial officer and lack the dignity appropriate to judicial office, with the effect of bringing the judiciary into disrepute.”
The second stipulation explains that “while Judge Shea apologizes for his misconduct and realizes that ‘he is the only one to blame,’ the investigative panel acknowledged that — based on the trial transcripts —‘it was patently obvious Judge Shea’s intemperate conduct frequently followed inappropriate or unprofessional conduct from lawyers, some of whom may have been seeking to aggravate Judge Shea and cause him to lose his temper.’”

ask still curious wrote:
where do we get the information that Bruce's bod was revoked? Seems like he keeps getting away with everything, including partying all night around town while on HOME confinement. Just because the victim used coke or partied with Bruce does not mean he should be shot, does it? What if it was your child he shot who was partying with him?
It also doesn't mean there was a murder. Neither individual involved were saintly, nor were either of them a pariah. George Zimmmerman, and Trayvon Martin, were in a similar situation. It shouldn't have happened. It is terrible that it did, but there was not a murder.
I do know that it is very difficult to convict someone of murder when the event took place inside their home, especially if they have the ability to provide for their own defense. As I look at this case, the State does not seem all that confident of their ability to convict. Central Florida is a place with several recent high profile murder trials. The tendency is to overcharge, to try to force the defendant into a plea bargain, and when that doesn't work, they walk away with an acquittal. As a lifelong resident of the area, I see that as political grandstanding, with a public record of ineptitude. It just doesn't work, when those charged have legal representation. I also see it as an egregious waste of taxpayer funds.
