Bond was lowered to $100,000 for a health clinic owner who was arrested, along with two Miami-Dade public school employees after allegedly defrauding the county’s medical insurance plan.
Once he posts bond, he’ll be required to wear a GPS monitor.
The owner of Operator Health Clinic and Leon Global Center is Yasiel Reyes-Gonzalez, 22, who prosecutors say billed the school district for care of about 100 schools employees, most of them school bus drivers, for services never performed.
He is charged with seven counts of patient brokering, each count punishable by up to five years in prison.
Convicted earlier this year of killing a tourist from Chicago in cold blood, a Miami-Dade judge has sentenced 26-year-old Brandon Rolle to life in prison without parole.
The jury had recommended a death sentence, but Judge Dennis Murphy overrode their decision last week.
Rolle was found guilty of robbing and killing Chicago tourist 54-year-old Ronald Gentile, in July of 2006 after Gentile stopped him and asked for directions.
Gentile was in town to celebrate his son’s 17th birthday.
Police say Gentile, unfamiliar with Miami-Dade, asked for help from a stranger and was robbed and shot while inside his rental car.
Gentile would have been heading back to his ex-wife’s home in the Dadeland Mall area, when police say he likely headed toward downtown Miami and ended up in the Grove.
Witnesses told police they saw Gentile roll down the window of his rented white Chevrolet Cobalt, then Rolle robbed and fatally shot Gentile.
The FBI is asking the public’s help in identifying a robber that held up a Regions Bank recently.
The man entered the Regions branch, located at 10 NW 42nd Avenue in Miami around 2 p.m. on Wednesday, June 15 and handed the teller a not demanding money.
After taking the undisclosed amount of cash, the robber fled the bank on foot. No one was injured during the robbery.
Anyone who can identify the robber is urged to call the FBI at 305-944-9101 or Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
Police have arrested a man they say fatally shot one man and attempted to kill another over a dice game.
Antonio Fountain, 19, is being held without bond for his alleged role in both cases.
Fountain became a suspect in the murder of Herbert Charles Gross III. Gross died on April 3rd, Northwest 14th Avenue and 63rd Street after officers heard gunshots in the area. They spotted a blue Mercury Sable driving off and crashing into a pole. Inside, Gross, 27, was found unconscious in the driver’s seat.
On April 5th, the Gross family pleaded for the public’s help to find the murderer.
Police arrested Fountain late Sunday and said they have evidence to charge him in both cases.
Fountain appeared before a bond court judge recently, where a judge ordered him held no bond.
A deaf Miami mother is facing aggravated child abuse charges after her one-year-old child was found with severe burn marks all over her body.
Police arrested the child’s mother Kamesha Seymour, 20, after being questioned in sign language to explain the child’s injuries.
Miami police said she could not “provide an explanation.” The child was in her care at the time of the incident, Miami police said in a report.
Police were called after a Miami Fire Rescue ambulance took the child to Jackson Memorial Hospital at 6 a.m. on June 9, from her home on the 7800 block of NE 2nd Avenue to be treated for severe burns. An officer interviewed a doctor who said the child’s injuries are evidence of abuse.
Seymour appeared before a bond court judge recently. The judge set her bond at $50,000.
