North Miami mayor, now suspended while facing fraud charges, declares her innocence – North Miami / NMB – MiamiHerald.com


P3qsE.St.56After a whirlwind 36 hours, North Miami Mayor Lucie Tondreau flew back to Miami to turn herself in and face charges on mortgage fraud — then emerged from the federal courthouse late Tuesday to declare her innocence.

Confronted by a throng of media, Tondreau pledged to her constituents that she would beat the charges — but ducked questions about Gov. Rick Scott’s order suspending her from office.

“I’m innocent, and I’m sure my attorneys and my community will be with me,” the 54-year-old politician said. “All I have to say is, North Miami stand tall.” via – MiamiHerald.com
