In Court: The lawyer for Aaron Whitley, the 42-year-old Palm Coast man accused of molesting a 12-year-old girl, argues a motion to allow Whitley to have contact with three of his five biological children. The three children are minors. A motion to suppress “all confessions, admissions and statements made by him” in connection with the alleged offense will be argued at a subsequent hearing. (An earlier version of this item had incorrectly reported that that motion would be argued today.) The girl secretly recorded Whitley. It is normally a third-degree felony to record someone in Florida, absent the person’s permission and in places where the person has a reasonable expectation of privacy. However, the Florida Legislature passed a law that allows children who are victims of assaults or abuse to secretly record their assailant without risk of penalty. Today;s argument before Circuit Judge Dennis Craig will test that law in one of its earliest implementations by an alleged victim in Florida. The hearing is at 10 a.m. in Courtroom 401 at the Flagler County courthouse.
The Palm Coast Code Enforcement Board meets at 10 a.m. at City Hall in Town Center.
Summer Time ‘Cupcake Citation’ Program in Bunnell, from July 3rd through August 7
The Bunnell Police Department has teamed up with a local Bunnell business owner, Theresa Tazwell, owner of Cupcake Café, to seek out all good kids in our neighborhoods. Our Officers will issue a Cupcake Citation good for one free cupcake to all kids observed doing the right thing. The “Recipe for a Citation” is detailed on the citation:
- Be Respectful
- Be Honest
- Be Responsible
- Be Grateful
- Be Kind
This program gets the Officers out of their vehicles and encourages the following:
- Promotes a positive one-on-one experience with a police officer.
- The kids see officers as friends and mentors.
- Help build bridges of trust, understanding and civic responsibility.
- And is an investment in our community.
The Bunnell Police Department advocates “Building community relationships through integrity, trust and communication” and the Cup Cake Citation initiative will help build relationships in a positive setting.
New Voting Precincts and Precinct Boundaries in Flagler-Palm Coast
From Elections Supervisor Kaiti Lenhart: In preparation for upcoming election cycles, new precinct boundaries have been approved to accommodate areas of growth in the county. Several voting locations have been impacted. Proposed changes to Flagler County precinct boundaries were presented to the Board of County Commissioners during their public workshop held on May 15, 2017. Two additional precincts were created and the boundaries of several other precincts were adjusted to shift voters from very heavily populated areas. The proposed changes were adopted during the regular meeting of the Board of County Commissioners on June 19, 2017. Affected voters can expect to receive a new Voter Information Card by the end of July 2017. For more information, please call (386) 313-4170. View the new precinct map and related information.
Nothing of note.
