comments thrown out for September trial

Comments that Florida state representative Bob Allen made to police following his arrest for solicitation will be thrown out of court because he was not read his Miranda rights, state prosecutors concluded Monday.

Allen is being charged with allegedly offering $20 to perform oral sex on an undercover police officer in a public restroom last month. He was recorded as saying that he entered the transaction out of fear of being attacked by the black men in the park. He's since apologized to local activists for his remarks.

Allen's attorney, Greg Eisenmenger, told the Orlando Sentinel Monday that authorities continued to question his client after he asked for legal counsel. The hearing was a precursor to the full trial, set for September 19. (The Advocate)
