More Indictments Issued in Expressway Authority Investigation

June 4, 2014 | WMFE, Orlando - A grand jury issued more indictments today in the case looking into Sunshine Law violations in the Orlando-Orange County Expressway Authority.

Former Florida House member Chris Dorworth, Florida Department of Transportation public affairs worker Rebekah Hammond and Scott Batterson, a former board member of the Orlando Orange County Expressway Authority, were all issued indictments.

The indictments came hours after another former board member, Marco Pena, pleaded guilty to violating Florida's open meetings law.

Previously, a grand jury indicted Batterson in April with the following:

  • Count 1: Solicitation for bribery by a public servant
  • Count 2: Solicitation for receiving compensation for official behavior (performance of duty)
  • Count 3: Solicitation for receiving compensation for official behavior (exerting influence)
