Our South Florida criminal defense attorneys have learned that a Fort Lauderdale lawyer has been nominated to be Florida’s next statewide prosecutor. A judge and another lawyer were also nominated. According to the South Florida Sun Sentinel, five applicants were interviewed in Tampa on Thursday, and the three finalists were announced by the Supreme Court Nominating Commission last Friday.
Once Attorney General-elect Pam Bondi takes office on January 4, she will make the appointment to a four-year term, choosing from among the following nominees: Haccord J. Curry Jr., assistant general counsel for the Department of Juvenile Justice in Fort Lauderdale; Miami-Dade County Judge Andrew S. Hague, and Nicholas Bernard Cox, regional director for the Department of Children & Families in Tampa. As former prosecutors ourselves, we’ll be interested in seeing who Bondi chooses.
