Governor Prays for Anderson Family

November 28th, 2006 by Mike Vasilinda

Seven Sheriffs Deputies and a nurse who stood by while Martin Lee Anderson was beaten and suffocated to death are being charges with criminal manslaughter of a child. The charge is a first degree felony and could result to up to 30 years in Prison.

Anderson died last January 6th. He was rushed to the hospital after spending just two hours in the Bay County Boot Camp. Videotape released last spring created an uproar among state legislators who eventually closed all of the boot camps in the state. This morning Governor Jeb Bush expressed his sympathy to the family.

The State Attorney also investigated the Sheriffs Office, the Department of Law Enforcement, and the Medical Examiner and has determined none of the agencies engaged in improper conduct. FDLE Commissioner Guy Tunnel did resign this past summer after emails showed he was communicating with the Sheriffs office about the investigation.
