Marchman Act Blog: Joe Losada and Daniel Fernandez: Former Miami-Dade detectives sentenced in shake-down case
Joe Losada (LEFT): 24 months in prison. Daniel Fernandez (RIGHT): 21 months behind bars.
The two former Miami-Dade police detectives learned their fates Monday as a Circuit Court judge sentenced them for their roles in the shakedown of a drug dealer in 2006.
The former officers showed no emotion as Circuit Judge Yvonne Colodny announced their prison terms. Their families, after the court hearing, did.
"My son dedicates his whole life to his country. He was in the military. All that means nothing," cried Losada's mother, Delores Losada, 71. "And the drug dealer is on the street."
