This man stole my father’s Jerry browns trust ft undo of 675000 from his 3 kids. He is a snake. Will do o say anything Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 He left that man to die! He took my family’s money! I didn’t have money for a attorney so he got away with it! LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Reply I think that his making all the phone calls to lawyers and politicians and then leaving a man dying on the side of the road is heinous. Then lying about driving the vehicle it’s indicative of his character. Its also a sham. He should pay for driving drunk and almost killing someone. A few months probation? He will do it again and you can just hope it won’t be your family he kills. Get them off the road when they are drunk drivers. I hope the man he crushed gets a huge settlement from this jerk. Joe Breaking NewsSentence announced this morningWhat started as a tragic head-on collision on SR46 last April ended in a Lake County courtroom this morning, as former Apopka City Administrator Richard Anderson entered into an agreement with the State Attorney’s Office in which he pled guilty to  leaving the scene of a crash involving injury, and leaving the scene of an accident.Anderson was sentenced to three years probation on the charge of leaving the scene of a crash involving injury, and six months probation on the charge of leaving the scene of an accident. Two other charges – reckless driving causing serious bodily injury, and reckless driving with bodily damage were dropped by the State Attorney (filed Nolle Prosequi) because they were unable to prove Anderson drove the vehicle.

Although the situation was bad, I don’t think he should be sitting in a prison. That is my opinion. Sandy Sez Please enter your comment!
