Florida Keys superintendent arrested on misconduct charges



Mug1 This just in from the Miami Herald:

Monroe County School District superintendent Randy Acevedo (left) was arrested Thursday morning on a charge of official misconduct. He faces five years in prison if convicted.

State Attorney Dennis Ward said the decision was made to arrest Acevedo based on testimony given to a grand jury, which indicted Acevedo Wednesday night.

Ward wouldn't elaborate on the charge, which is officially listed as obstruction of justice in
Acevedo's booking information on the Monroe Sheriff's Office Web site.

For more details, see the Herald's full report.

UPDATE: Gov. Crist has suspended Acevedo from office. See his executive order.
