Broward Judge David Haimes did not force prosecutors to turn over a copy of the television talent contract of a sheriff’s deputy arresting a criminal defendant on camera. Instead, the judge suggested that the Broward Public Defender’s Office issue a subpoena to the companies that produced the video that aired on Deputy Andrea Penoyer’s show called Police Women of Broward County. The public defender is likely to follow the judge’s suggestion. The cable television show that appears on TLC aired the filmed arrest of defendant Kevin E. Wallace after he allegedly sold a small amount of cocaine in Pompano Beach and now Deputy Peyoner is a witness for the state. Do you think real arrests should be filmed on reality TV? What ever happened to confidentiality and privacy? Should Andrea Penoyer make money off of someone else’s misfortune?
