FT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – The Broward State Attorney’s Office has dropped more than three dozen criminal cases connected to four former Fort Lauderdale Police officers caught up in a racism scandal.

Prosecutors have been reviewing the arrests made by former officers Alex Alvarez, James Wells, Jason Holding and Christopher Sousa.

On Thursday, prosecutors confirmed that they plan to drop 17 Misdemeanor cases where the officers were the main officer involved in the case and they have already dropped 12 felony cases, eight misdemeanor cases and one juvenile case.

“This is a serious matter,” said Broward State Attorney’s Office spokesman Ron Ishoy. “We continue to review each case in which these former policemen were the principal officers involved in the arrest. We are dropping charges against the defendants where it is appropriate.”
