- Abortionist Zvi Harry Perper (racketeering, drug trafficking)
- Abortionist Randall Whitney (aggravated battery; reduced to misdemeanor on “no contest” plea)

According to an Orlando Sentinel report on December 3, 2012:
A veteran Orlando police officer was arrested today after he was accused of raping a woman before taking her to jail, Orlando Police Chief Paul Rooney said at a news conference.
Officer Roderick D. Johnson was booked at the Orange County Jail around 2:30 p.m. on two counts of sexual battery by a law-enforcement officer, jail records show. He is being held on $10,500 bail.
The investigation into Johnson began weeks ago after the alleged victim notified jail staff. She told jail officials that Johnson took her to an undisclosed location after she had been arrested and they had sexual relations. The officer then took the woman to the jail, where she was booked for an undisclosed crime.
Citing the advice of the department’s attorneys, Rooney declined to release details of the investigation, including the location where the alleged rape took place. He wouldn’t disclose the charges the woman faced at the time of her arrest.
