Miami-Dade Commissioner Joe Martinez Admits He’s Guilty and Will Face Charges.

Tuesday morning, Miami-Dade County Commissioner Joe Martinez turned himself into the police to face criminal accusations related to a protracted corruption investigation.

Before being admitted to the prison, Martinez was seen entering the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center at about 9:15 a.m. According to jail records, he is accused of receiving unauthorized remuneration and conspiring to receive such compensation. A $12,500 bond was imposed for him.

Later on Tuesday, Martinez showed up in bail court, where it was discovered he had previously posted bond. He was jailed for a short while before being let go.

“One day when I have a chance to talk to you, I’ll talk to all of you,” Martinez told reporters outside the jailhouse. “Right now, I’m just gonna go and just deal with that.”

The accusations against Martinez were presented at a news conference on Tuesday by Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle and Miami-Dade Inspector General Felix Jimenez.

Soliciting Funds

“The prospect of a public official soliciting funds to benefit himself or his business associates is both illegal and it’s offensive,” Fernandez Rundle said. “There are a lot of good hardworking people in government who respect and honor the public’s trust.”

In a statement on Monday, Martinez’s counsel acknowledged that prosecutors had ordered Martinez to turn himself in this week.

The charges were “based on false claims stemming from his private practice employment as a consultant while he was a private individual and not an elected official,” according to the statement.

Although authorities confirmed it hadn’t been that long, the statement claimed Martinez had been the subject of an inquiry for five years.
