Hall not guilty, Valentino guilty

State Attorney Bill Eddins has issued his reports on the Sunshine Law investigations of Pensacola City Councilman Sam Hall and Escambia County Commissioner Gene Valentino.

Eddins ruled that Hall and Valentino did not violate Sunshine Laws when they met at City Hall on April 28, 2009.

However Valentino did violated public records laws by not completely responding to the records request of the Perdido Key residents. This is a noncriminal infraction punishable by a fine not to exceed $500. Valentino will appear in court on August 27 on this charge.
