Broward Deputy Fired More Than a Year After Stealing Woman’s Cell Phone

Carlos Miller of Photography is Not A Crime shared the following story.

It took more than a year, but a Broward County sheriff’s deputy was fired for stealing a woman’s cell phone because she wouldn’t stop video recording him in a case of road rage.

Paul Pletcher is not going to let that stop him from trying to get his job back.

However, Pletcher is also facing 11 years in prison for the incident, so he might want to place his energy in maintaining his freedom instead of his job.

This is a man who was not even in uniform or on-duty when he jumped out of his truck and confronted a pair of women in another car at a traffic light, so he is not exactly the brightest of the bunch.

According to the South Florida Sun Sentinel:

The seven-year veteran is still awaiting trial on charges of burglary, battery, criminal mischief and petty theft. He is pleading not guilty.

Pletcher, 38, was terminated July 26 for conduct unbecoming an employee and failing to obey the law, say documents released to the Sun Sentinel this week.

He is seeking arbitration to get his job back, said Alberto Milian, Pletcher’s attorney.

“The Sheriff’s Office is treating him unfairly,” Milian said. “They are depriving him of his job when he has not even been found guilty. Normally when you get accused of a crime, you get your day in court.”

At a hearing on Friday, Milian asked Broward Circuit Judge Michael Usan for more time to prepare for trial. Usan set the next hearing for Dec. 7.

So, his attorney is complaining that his client has not had his day in court while asking the judge to postpone that day in court.

That’s not surprising considering the overwhelming video evidence against him in which he continually demands the woman to hand over the phone.

“Give me the phone now or else you’re going to jail,” he tells her before the video goes black because Neyda Osorio stuffed it into her purse.

According to police reports, when Pletcher realized he was being recorded, he demanded Osorio’s phone. Osorio put the phone in her purse, but Pletcher put his arm across her neck, reached into her purse and grabbed the phone. He then told her to pull into a bank parking lot. As she pulled in, she noticed him driving off with her phone and driver’s license.

Plantation officers found the phone in two pieces near the spot where Pletcher pulled over Osorio.

Yet, despite all this evidence, it still took seven months for him to be officially charged, which was when he taken off paid administrative leave and suspended without pay, so it’s no wonder he believes he can get his job back.

After all, look at what he has gotten away with already, according to the Huffington Post.

Osorio’s lawyers told NBC Miami that Pletcher did the exact same thing to another woman three years ago. And in 2007, he was involved in an accident, in which a motorcyclist died. His initial application to join BSO was rejected thanks to his questionable driving record, which includes a 1995 citation for driving 105 mph in a 55-mph zone.

    Thank god no one in the service commits crime…

    Reported crimes at Camp Pendleton in 2009
    Murder: 1
    Rape: 21
    Other sex offenses: 9
    Robbery: 1
    Aggravated assault: 72
    Assault against police officer: 11
    Simple assault: 241
    Reported suicide attempts: 26 (one confirmed suicide)
    Domestic disturbance: 71

    Willful destruction of nongovernment property: 210
    Fraud: 25
    Drug offenses: 68
    Animal control: 369

    For 2009, the base had 452 crimes against persons; 926 property crimes, including 19 burglaries; 831 miscellaneous, of which 757 are listed as “other”; 68 drug crimes; and 2,057 “other security activities,” including animal control complaints and alarm investigations.

    While a majority of the base population is made up of active-duty Marines between the ages of 18 and 25 and therefore not directly comparative to the population of a city, a look at Encinitas and its 2008 crime report is one way to compare the numbers.

    Encinitas’ population is nearly identical to Camp Pendleton’s on a workday. The city’s 2008 report compiled by the San Diego Association of Governments shows it had 15 reported rapes, 33 robberies, 83 aggravated assaults, 275 burglaries, 669 larcenies and 89 motor vehicle thefts.

    There are more reported crimes ON base, then off. And that’s just one base of ‘shield and spear’ warriors —

    Common hates Team Green. Troops are beloved, cops are reviled.

    Envy is pathetic.

  • shawn

    @Common shithead

    Soldiers are properly held accountable for their crimes. Nor are they charged with law enforcement. They are also largely between 18 and 25, the ages where most people are far more likely to have issues with the law. They are in fact more accountable than most of us.

    Then there is the colonel who publicly commented that his boys in Iraq are under more stringent rules of engagement than an officer on the streets of the good ol’ US of A. Now that is $#@!#$ up.

    Go ahead and hate soldiers if you want. But they didn’t sign up to be bully boys like the guys you’re busy brown nosing with. Soldiers put up with conditions and dangers that would make any of your little piglets crap themselves. I would love to see a cop’s face if he was issued a car that didn’t even have A/C.

  • The_Lakewood_4_Are_Burning_In_Hell

    Most FOBs in Afghanistan don’t have adequate donut facilities. Common would be on a medivac bird inside a week.

    Though I suspect, by his dislike of troops, that Common was in the military at one time. Clerk, cook, mechanic or some such, but never fit in. Saw police work as a chance to get back at everyone who didn’t recognize his value. Likely harasses troops for fun from the donut mobile.

  • Common Sense

    I know you don’t like it when I prove that beloved soldiers commit crime or otherwise do something that clearly tarnishs the hallowed picture you have. And remember, the numbers weren’t of some FOB, its was in California.

  • The_Lakewood_4_Are_Burning_In_Hell

    So, haven’t we established that cops are charged with upholding the law? Haven’t you deflected previously by conflating a soldier charged with the defense of the nation with a cop violating the very laws they can throw you In a dungeon for violating?

    You know, a cop charged with enforcing drug laws caught with a pile of empty heroin packets from the evidence locker and stolen needles. I’m sure you remember, the case you were cheering Team Blue for giving the drug using cop a slap on the wrist?

    When a soldier fails in defense of the nation, then you have something relevant to talk about. Otherwise you are just anti-soldier trolling. I personally could give a fuck less about your opinion of soldiers, but don’t use that trolling to deflect from a thieving, lying bastard of a cop.

  • Common Sense

    “defense of the nation” – and how does one qualify that?

    “..Gunnery Sgt. Eric Hamilton, who pleaded guilty to conspiracy in what prosecutors say was a scheme to help Iraqi contractors steal 70 generators that were meant to supply electricity for fellow Marines. He sent some of their payments home in a footlocker and had other money wired, the report said…”

    “Fort Bragg, N.C. — A Spring Lake gun shop was temporarily closed Monday after an overnight burglary in which a Fort Bragg soldier with the 82nd Airborne allegedly stole more than $68,000 worth of guns, ammunition and accessories.

    A handwritten note attached to yellow crime scene tape outside Guns Plus on North Bragg Boulevard read: “Guns Plus will be closed for the day due to scumbags breaking in. But we caught them.”

    Cumberland County sheriff’s deputies arrested Spc. William David Devane, 28, of 8961 Ardennes Road, who they found hiding early Monday morning on top of an old truck parked in heavy brush next door to the business….”

    “LAKEWOOD, Wash. — Capt. Michael Nguyen had a profitable tour of duty in Iraq — so profitable, in fact, that soon after returning to this working-class neighborhood near the Army’s Fort Lewis, he was parking a Hummer H3T outside his apartment.

    Then a $70,000 BMW M-3 showed up. People notice cars like that on a street filled with pickup trucks, old Chevys and low-end sport-utility vehicles.

    “I spent 10 years in the military, and I can tell you, nobody’s giving me bailouts like that,” said Mark Smith, who lives across the street.

    The big-ticket cars raised eyebrows in more places than the neighborhood.

    Federal investigators found Nguyen’s $6,169-a-month Army paychecks untouched in the bank since his return from Iraq in June 2008, while he was paying credit-card bills for three flat-screen TVs, two desktop computers, a laptop, several iPods, a PlayStation 3 and a dozen combat video games, a refrigerator, new living room and dining room furniture, a Nikon camera and a pair of high-powered handguns.

    In a federal indictment in March 2009, prosecutors alleged that Nguyen managed to skim more than $690,000 in cash while acting as the civil-affairs officer responsible for overseeing millions of dollars intended for reconstruction projects and payments to private Iraqi security forces northeast of Baghdad….”

    …yep, those in the service are all saints.

  • The_Lakewood_4_Are_Burning_In_Hell

    Again, what does that have to do with a cop, under color of law, assaulting a woman and stealing her phone to cover for his malfeasance?

    “Give me the phone or you’re going to jail”

    And this relates in what way to a logistics pogue officer stealing from a civil affairs unit?

    Ask the people of New Orleans, who were they happier to see after Katrina, the NOPD, or the national guard? If you are black and like to remain several ounces lighter in lead content, the answer is easy.

    Well, maybe one more story and after all, nothing like a good gang rape and murder huh Lakewood? And it even included a cover-up.

    Ex-Soldier Charged With Raping Iraqi, Killing Family
    July 3, 2006

    Charlotte, N.C. (AP) — Federal prosecutors accused a former U.S. soldier Monday of raping and murdering a young Iraqi woman and gunning down her family, all of whose bodies were found burned in an apparent cover-up.

    Steven D. Green, a 21-year-old former Army private first class, who was recently discharged because of a “personality disorder,” appeared Monday in a federal magistrate’s courtroom in Charlotte.

    The murder and rape charges against him grew out of a military investigation involving as many as five soldiers in the alleged rape and killing of a young woman in Mahmoudiya. Three of the woman’s relatives were also killed in the incident — one of them a girl believed to be about 5.

    Go Army!

    Note our resident donut gobbler / kiddie diddler never bothered to address his fellow cop’s behavior. Again, what does any of this have to do with the officer above? We know you are anti-soldier. We get that. Your fellow members of the authoritarian circlejerk probably are too, even First Sergeant Alabama.

    Fakewood, I will say this: I will defend my fellow Soldiers until the day I die. But, you’re the one who constantly says that cops can do no right, and Soldiers can do no wrong. Common was proving a point. Not all cops are bad, and not all Soldiers are good. I agree with you on one point: the UCMJ will mete out punishment to Soldiers. Cops do get away with more. The thing is, this site posts way more BS stories than legitimate ones. You are so blinded over your rage of cops you don’t see that.

    Shawn, this site isn’t about cops. Its about people who hate cops. Big difference.

  • The_Lakewood_4_Are_Burning_In_Hell

    Wow, First Sergeant. Does Common actually have to shove his hand up your ass for you to act as his sock puppet? The “soldiers can do no wrong” thing is classic Common trolling. I have declared on numerous occasions that I believe soldiers are held to MUCH higher standards than cops. Not perfect, but a much better system than the loosey-goosey bullshit standards cops are held to.

    The UCMJ has penalties for adultery. Common was recently chortling over a story where a cop murdered his adulterous cunt’s husband and got away with it. In the Army, he would have been blasted, if nothing else, for having his cock in another man’s wife. Cops have no such moral standards. Another recent cops getting a wrist slap story involved a cop stealing hundreds of packets of heroin and getting misdemeanor charges. See what happens to an officer caught stealing ANYTHING, let alone illegal drugs.

    Common is proving no points. It chaps him that soldiers are generally beloved and cops are not. He thinks i somehow give a fuck what a cop thinks about anything, let alone his moral betters in the Army. His chosen profession is one half step below crack whore in value. At least crack whores provide valuable blowjob services. What do cops provide, other than ticket revenue and examples of what happens when you don’t do enough cardio?

    YouTube has forever destroyed the image of cops and they know it. Images of 9 year olds with black eyes and grandmothers and preganant women tased at traffic stops are rapidly erasing what little good will the public has left. If cops were generally held to acount, we would not be on this site, as there would be no need.

    But continue to comment spoon with the members of the Authoritarian Circle Jerk. It prevents you from having to think.

  • Common Sense

    “..Private Kevin Robinson, rape and theft, faced 30 years – got 6 years…”

    “…Specialist Adam Winfield, 23, of Coral Gables, Fla., had been charged with premeditated murder, aggravated assault and conspiracy to commit murder in several incidents, including the deaths of three Afghan civilians in Kandahar Province…”

    He plead to a reduced charge and was sentenced to 3 years, with credit for 507 days.

    Interesting part, the other soldiers who also plotted and killed unarmed citizens, you know, the ones they were ensuring their liberty and human rights, they plotted to kill Winfield as well.

    “….Over the last 10 years, the Army has court-martialed 43 people on murder or manslaughter charges in cases that occurred in Iraq or Afghanistan and that included both civilian victims and detainees. Twenty-eight were convicted and 15 acquitted. The acquittal rate was twice as high as in civilian courts.

    Some cases that have received prominent attention have never led to charges.

    For example, in 2008 the military did not bring charges against two Marines who commanded a unit accused of firing indiscriminately at cars and bystanders along a 10-mile stretch in Afghanistan, killing 19 people and wounding 50….”

    And as far as adultery, its ‘rarely’ charged unless its added with other sex crimes such as Brig General Sinclair who faces “…charges that include forced sex, wrongful sexual conduct, violating an order, possessing pornography and alcohol while deployed, and misusing a government travel charge card and filing fraudulent claims.”

    Oh yea, I left out that he wasn’t arrested…

    “…BERLIN — The former commander of the Army’s 173rd Airborne Brigade was sentenced to a $300,000 fine and issued a formal reprimand Thursday after being found guilty at a court-martial of multiple counts of fraud, conduct unbecoming of an officer, bigamy and other charges related to an alleged long-term extramarital affair he had with a woman he met in Iraq when they both lived in Europe.

    As part of the sentence, Col. James Johnson III will have to serve five years in jail if the fine is unpaid, said Army spokeswoman Hilde Patton.

    He had faced possible decades in prison and dismissal from the Army as a maximum sentence. The panel of five colonels who presided over the court-martial in the German city of Kaiserslautern did not explain their decision.

    Johnson had pleaded guilty to 13 counts against him and was found guilty of two other counts by the panel of officers hearing the case. Twelve other counts were dismissed as the proceedings opened Sunday…”

    Just pay back the money he stole and he’s good, no jail time or discharge.

    “….A 44 year-old Texas National Guard recruiter from Lubbock thought he was going to have a steamy sex session with a 15 year-old girl he met on the Internet. Instead, cops were waiting for him in New Mexico. The pudgy sergeant was nabbed with condoms in his pockets. The “teenybopper” he wanted to sleep with turned out to be an undercover cop…”
