Previously we reported the felony charges of Deputy Jafet Miranda for a case in 2007 where he was listed as the co-defendant in a felony armed robbery case. We posted screen shots of the charges that were obtained from the Osceola Clerk of Courts website.
Shortly there after, those records disappeared. As a result, when the public went to look for the records themselves, they were no longer there, and it brought into question the accuracy of our reporting.
Further investigation revealed that Deputy Miranda was able to reduce his charges and later get the record expunged.
The problem is that the Osceola Clerk of Courts failed to delete the records as required by law. As a result, we were able to find them from a simple public records search.
