Alberto B. Martinez, Convicted Felon

I have always maintained that while the Army jurors who sat in judgement of Staff Sergeant Alberto Martinez allowed Martinez to escape punishment for the murder of my late husband, nothing could ever allow Martinez to escape his own character. In my view, Martinez is simply doomed to be the man that he has chosen to be.

For instance, today, I learned via an anonymous comment on my blog that Martinez was convicted in 2015 of a Florida felony contraband offense. I can only surmise that this was likely the product of the information I received here indicating that Marinez had been dismissed from his position at Florida's Taylor Correctional Institution for allegedly smuggling contraband into the prison.

Upon visiting the Florida Department of Corrections website, I found the information copied below.

It is jarring for me to see this. Martinez is a man I would just as soon never contemplate again. Yet here he is, and yet again I must look at this man who I believe murdered my husband and got away with it.

But I will say this: I am not in the least surprised that Martinez has again found himself in trouble with the law. We shall see soon enough what the future holds for the likes of him.

Having served with your husband, I agree ... But I also believe that Martinez had help and that person escaped justice too. Sad state of affairs. Praying for your strength everyday.

100% agree the system failed. I served with your husband he was a great officer I think of him often.

The only good news is that Alberto apparently lives in a POS house in a POS area of a POS region of Tallahassee. You can google it easily and practically zoom in on the shack he lives in. I don't think he is going to go to graduate school, be honored by his exceptional community service (except picking up trash maybe) or win any writing awards. He has to live with what he did but I do wonder, as a therapist, if he is bothered by his conscience. Who knows. A very sad affair. Btw, notice that the other anonymous poster who pretended to be different people in support of Alberto and against your husband misspelled the same simple word "peers" as "piers" in different letters. Gee I wonder which shack dweller in Crawfordville wrote all those and ALSO isn't going to Harvard anytime soon?
