A number of Sheriffs around the country have pledged to abide by the Second Amendment and not enforce laws that they believe violate the Constitution.

Sixty-seven sheriffs in Florida signed one of those pledges declaring that they would uphold the Second Amendment and protect people’s’ right to keep and bear arms.


One of those signatories, Sheriff Nicholas Finch, was arrested by Governor Rick Scott in Florida for actions he took in a case in early March in which Finch made his stand for the Second Amendment.

Carl Causey has been appointed to replace him by Governor Scott until July when the case will be heard.


The charge stems from an incident involving his Deputy Sheriff, James Hoagland.


On March 8, Sgt. James Hoagland arrested a man named Floyd Parrish who was carrying a concealing semi-automatic, fully loaded. As Parrish was being booked, one jail worker said Finch came in with a Parrish family member and spoke with Parrish. Finch then took possession of Parrish’s arrest file and released Parrish and his gun.


Several days later, Hoagland asked Finch about it and Finch said he believed in “Second Amendment rights.”


Court records showed that Parrish’s name was whited-out from the county jail log. Hoagland did have a copy of the arrest record but the original record is missing.


Mr. Finch was arrested on a Third-Degree Felony charge of official misconduct for destroying or removing official documents from the county jail to cover up the arrest of Mr. Parrish. Finch was released on his own recognizance.
