State Attorney Angela Corey fires IT director who raised concerns in Trayvon Martin case
The Jacksonville Times-Union ^ | July 13, 2013 - 12:16am | Updated: July 13, 2013 - 12:42pm | David Bauerlein

State Attorney Angela Corey fired her office’s information technology director Friday after he testified last month about being concerned prosecutors did not turn over information to George Zimmerman’s defense team in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

On the same day attorneys finished their closing arguments in that nationally watched trial, a state attorney investigator went to Ben Kruidbos’ home about 7:30 a.m. to hand-deliver a letter stating Kruidbos “can never again be trusted to step foot in this office.”

The letter contended Kruibos did a poor job overseeing the information technology department, violated public records law for retaining documents, and noted he was questioned in March when the office was trying to determine who had leaked personnel information obtained through a computer breach.

In an interview Friday, Kruidbos denied the allegations in the letter, which was written by Cheryl Peek, the managing director of the State Attorney’s Office.

He said he had acted in good faith about “genuine concerns.” He said he had been proud to work at the State Attorney’s Office and feared the letter would cripple his chances at finding another job to support his family, including a 4-month-old son.

“I don’t have any regrets,” he said, “but I am terrified about the future and what that will end up being.”(continued)

Looks like destroying Zimmerman was not enough; they’re going to go after anybody who dared expose their efforts to do so.

Looks like Angela Corey wants to be a defendant in a wrongful termination lawsuit.

I would take a guess his work performance reviews do not match his “poor performance” the letter cited.

Sue the Bastards for firing him in retaliation for telling the truth.Can they even legally terminate him without giving him a chance to defend himself? The State Attorneys office in Florida seems to have a very big stink emanating from within it.

How did you like this little nugget:

"That investigation followed news reports in February that Corey approved using about $342,000 in taxpayer dollars to upgrade pensions for herself and de la Rionda. Kruidbos said the investigation might have stemmed from the stories about the pensions."

The corruption runs deep with Angela Corey.

Unless he has a contract, Fla is a “At Will”( I think) state and you can terminated without cause.
That said seems she sighted the cause as be being a whistle blower ....

Even in a at will state you have rights against wrongful termination, it’s not as cut and dried as people think.

I would take a guess his work performance reviews do not match his “poor performance” the letter cited.

From a full reading of the article, Corey's office was evidently consumed by paranoia.

I counted at least four other former employees, aside from Kruidbos, dismissed for being "untrustworthy", or some variant thereof.

It doesn't sound like a pleasant place to work...and Angela Corey doesn't sound like a very good person (unless, evidently, you're Bernie de la Rionda).

I'm no expert on this; however, one suspects that the "whistle blower" laws might assist Mister Kruidbos in a heckuva lawsuit.

BTW, I seem to recall that juries are kindly disposed to whistle blowers.

“Corey should be tried and convicted for violating Zimmerman’s rights and then imprisoned.”

Hey Floridians, how about your worthless governor. You’ve managed to have three turkeys in a row. That puts you right up there with Illinois. The only difference is that the Illinois governors manage to be criminal enough to go to prison directly from the governor’s chair! What a disgrace Scott turns out to be.

Paladin2 ~:" Corey needs to retire herself."

I disagree - not retire !..TERMINATE !

Terminate "with cause" , for prosecutorial misconduct , offical misconduct ,failure to disclose information during 'discovery',
malfeasance of office, untimely release of information during discovery, obstructing justice , violation of Zimmerman civil rights to a fair trial, etc.

Penalty : Florida disbarment , and altogether take way her retirement, as well as de la Rond , that was just increased .
Immoral and illegal activity should not be rewarded !

Any trial depends on fairness ~ dont forget that the statue " Justice" is blindfolded .
There is so much pressure on this political "Show Trial" from the Governors office on down, that prosecution beleives they will win "at any cost".
Then .. let it cost them !!
Let the civil lawsuits begin ..(regardless how the criminal charges are resolved ) !!

I believe these are Jeb Bush holdovers,
in which case they are RHINOe ( elites )
in which case they should be shown the door and brought up on disbarment , criminal , and civil charges.

There are some here that think Jeb Bush would make an good candidate for the upcomming Presidential elections
well , look again, because these are Jeb Bush'es people RHINOe (elites )!!

Kruidbos said he became concerned that lead prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda might not have turned over Kruidbos’ report to defense attorneys. Kruidbos asked White in April for legal advice and described some contents of his report such as a photo of an African-American hand holding a gun, a photo of a plant resembling marijuana, and a text message referring to a gun transaction.

White then contacted one of Zimmerman’s attorneys and learned the defense had not received the report generated by Kruidbos. The defense did receive the source file from the cellphone and used its own experts to extract data. Last month, Zimmerman’s attorneys subpoenaed both White and Kruidbos during a pretrial hearing on their motion seeking sanctions against prosecutors. Circuit Judge Debra Nelson deferred a ruling until after the trial.

Does this describe the same data which Judge Nelson excluded from evidence?

If so, there is a strong argument to be made that such a ruling was obvious and reversible error. The data excluded shows Martin to be an aggressive street punk and the whole state case scribing him as being a "child" would be destroyed.

Is there some connection between the judge and Cory? One is a Democrat and the other Republican but I think both of them are unwed and probably women who wear very sensible shoes. Was the judge protecting the prosecutor with this ruling?

Does the prosecutorial misconduct, if true when coupled with the erroneous ruling, if erroneous, provide good grounds for appeal?

The cell phone images and texts were among the items excluded from evidence, yes.

One wonders exactly why a judge would defer a ruling on such matters until after the trial.

And, yes, it certainly does appear that the judge and the state attorney are working "hand in hand".

Your Dreyfuss analogy becomes more apt with every passing day.
