Rush Limbaugh Takes Deal on Prescription Fraud Charges
The Palm Beach Sheriff's office announced today that Rush Limbaugh turned himself in on an arrest warrant for prescription fraud charges connected to the doctor-shopping charges. He was there for an hour and posted a $3,000.00 bond.
Talk about cops milking arrests for publicity....The case is settled. Limbaugh is getting a deferrred prosecution. The charges will be dismissed in 18 months. That's even better than a deferred judgment which requires a guilty plea.
The State Attorney has filed a single charge of doctor shopping with the Court. The charge is being held in abeyance under the terms of an agreement between the State and Mr. Limbaugh. Mr. Limbaugh has filed a plea of "Not Guilty" with the Court.
They should have let him surrender on a summons. The only reason they insisted Rush turn himself in on the arrest warrant and get booked was to shame him. Shame on them.
