Former sheriff's deputy given 30 days to vacate park home

BRANDON — A Hillsborough Sheriff's deputy fired in 2008 has 30 days to vacate the rent-free mobile home where he lived for two decades in Saladino Park in exchange for providing security.

The county sent Michael Cartwright notices to vacate for more than a year after he was fired. Cartwright continued to insist he was unjustly terminated and got a lawyer. In November, Hillsborough County opened a lawsuit against him so a judge would make him leave.

A judge granted that request Wednesday, said Rob Brazel, an attorney for the county.
