Zimmerman prosecutor Angela Corey now under state investigation

She is accused of illegally firing her information technology director, Ben Kruidbos, because of his testimony in the Zimmerman case.

OCALA, Fla., September 17, 2013 — George Zimmerman’s highly controversial prosecutor,  Angela Corey, is now under state investigation for firing Ben Kruidbos, the Jacksonville Times-Union reports.

“Kruidbos received a letter from the Florida Commission on Ethics earlier this week saying the investigation was occurring,” the T-U’s Larry Hannan wrote last week. “Investigator Specialist Kathleen Mann, who sent the letter, declined to comment on the investigation when contacted by the Times-Union on Friday.”
