Former Palm Beach County Commissioner Tony Masilotti, who still has more than two years to go on his federal honest services fraud sentence, wants out early, citing Judge Kenneth Ryskamp’s belief that the honest services statute is unconstitutionally vague.

Masilotti used his position to make $10 million on secret land deals. He pleaded guilty to honest services fraud as part of a deal with prosecutors.

    Unconstitutional Vague ! What..you pled guilty to a crime (period) a crime that you sir; have to pay the price for. Who do you think you are, better than the average citizen that pleads guilty to a crime. Oh, I sure when you get out you will have money that you did not fully disclose to the Feds. Play a new CD already…serve your time cry baby!

  2. Fred Garvin Says:

    No court has ruled that the law is unconstitutional and until such time, the law is valid and all convictions under such law cannot be overturned. Masilotti plead guilty to the crimes for which he was accused. The little weasel and the rest of the corrupt convicted politicians need to shut up and serve the time.
