Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

(Source: The Miami Herald) MIAMI – Former Hollywood, Fla., cop Mike Verdugo, fired after word spread on the Internet that he was in a gay porn film, is now fighting to keep his Florida police certification.

On Tuesday, Verdugo's lawyers held a news conference and rally in Wilton Manors, Fla., seeking support for him.

Wilton Manors attorney George Castrataro said he and Kent are representing Verdugo for free and that if any money is won in the case it will be donated to a gay charity.

"The power of the masses is in front of me," Castrataro told the crowd of about 100 people Tuesday. "We have to rely on you."
