The Virus II

One week ago Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings announced a stay-at-home order for residents of Orange County. This order was made in response to the spread of the coronavirus or COVID-19.

On April 1, 2020 Florida Governor Rick DeSantis made an executive order stating all residents of Florida will abide by a stay-at-home order until the end of April.

The stay-at-home extension will affect many small businesses as well as government agencies.

Jeremy Dewitte currently has nine pending felony cases in Orange County. He also has five pending traffic hearings in the same county.

On March 14, 2020 Jeremy Dewitte was ticketed by Sergeant Keith Vidler. He was accused of misrepresenting his insurance and displaying prohibited red and blue lights on his vehicle.

Misrepresentation of insurance is a first degree misdemeanor and a court appearance is mandatory. On March 16, 2020 Jeremy Dewitte was given a court date notification.

On March 26, 2020 Jeremy Dewitte’s current defense attorney Amir Ladan filed a notice of appearance. He appeared to be distracted and entered the wrong calendar date. He requested an infraction hearing for the prohibited lights ticket issued by Sergeant Vidler.

The March 26, 2020 hearing was rescheduled.

On December 2, 2019 Jeremy Dewitte received two tickets from Deputy Sheriff Michael Fuller.

Fuller claimed Jeremy Dewitte was driving with a suspended license without his knowledge. Fuller also claimed Jeremy ran a red light.

Jeremy Dewitte entered a not guilty plea on January 1, 2020. He was not represented by an attorney and the hearing is still pending.

On September 7, 2019 Jeremy Dewitte was ticketed by Officer Jerrell Ogletree during his infamous Windermere arrest.

Jeremy Dewitte was accused of passing within an occupied lane and passing on a double solid line. On October 28, 2019, two days before Jeremy Dewitte’s second police impersonation arrest, Amir Ladan filed a notice of appearance. Ladan requested an infraction hearing.

The hearing was originally scheduled for December 10, 2019 but it was rescheduled for April 14, 2020.

Jeremy Dewitte’s nine pending felony cases in Orange County have been greatly affected by the coronavirus but there has been some movement, albeit at a snail’s pace.

There is currently a new trial date for Jeremy Dewitte’s Windermere police impersonation case. A trial management conference is set for May 8, 2020. A trial date is set for May 11, 2020 with Judge Renee Roche.

The felony case involving an off-duty deputy has been continued. On March 25, 2020 Amir Ladan filed an unopposed motion to continue.

Jeremy Dewitte has another pretrial conference and trial set with Judge Julie O’Kane. The pretrial conference is May 5, 2020 and the trial is May 18, 2020. This is the 2019 case involving a victim named Heather who was recorded without her knowledge while making a complaint to Metro-State Special Services.

There are five more felony cases with the same arraignment date of April 2, 2020.

Assistant State Attorney Steven Casey Miller filed four notices of supplemental discovery in four of the nine felony cases on March 31, 2020.

The supplemental discovery notices involve the Department of State Electronic Articles of Organization, otherwise known as Sunbiz.

Metro-State Services, LLC and Metro-State Emergency Services Unit, LLC were filed and dissolved through Sunbiz.

Jessica Bolden, Jeremy Dewitte’s girlfriend and a fellow Metro-State officer, was the registered agent for both businesses until she claimed she no longer wanted to pursue the business and she didn’t authorize her signature.

Jessica Bolden made this decision two days after Jeremy Dewitte was arrested a second time for impersonating police officers.

Metro-State Special Services Vehicle Protection Unit, LLC is still registered under the name Jermy Dewiit.

With a stay-at-home extension headed into the beginning of May it is still unclear when all of Jeremy Dewitte’s felony cases will be resolved.
