The following information was extracted from THE ORLANDO SENTINEL of February 12, 2015:
Festa had apparently worked for at least two other police departments.
In 2000, while working in Georgia, he was disciplined for making false statements. By 2011, he was working for Mascotte (a so-called city) where he was disciplined for misusing a personal information database. (A sacking offence in the UK, one that may have seen his prosecuted). In 2012, he was disciplined for using a personal mobile phone while in a patrol car instead of the mandatory two-way radio.
In 2004, Rigdon was working for the Volusia County Sheriff’s s Office. He too had misused an official database. He ended up being sacked.
