Bob Norman, an investigative reporter with Miami ABC affiliate WPLG-TV, will not have to worry about paying a fine or spending a few days in jail.

And he’s got the Broward County State Attorney’s Office to thank for that.

The Miami Herald reports Norman allegedly entered a farm that’s involved in a lawsuit and did so without permission.

Norman’s trespassing charge (which took place on the job) was dropped when the state attorney’s representatives told him he wouldn’t be prosecuted.

He did, however, violate the trespass statute.

Chalk it up to inexperience? Maybe. Or he had a great lead. Regardless, Norman declined to comment.

I thought investigative reporters were somewhat familiar with law?

  1. This guy knew exactly what he was doing. He deserved to be arrested and charged. He is vile and nasty in his reporting and is downright libelous and slanderous in his reporting. I’m surprised he has not been sued yet.
