Miami Woman Arrested After Allegedly Posing As Student To Get Kids To Follow Her On Instagram

Francisquini was reportedly spotted wearing a backpack and carrying a skateboard and recording her interactions on her phone. When she was stopped, she claimed to be a student looking for the registration office.

While allegedly at first refusing to leave, she ended up leaving through a side door before police arrived.  However, police promptly spotted all of her flyers which made identification pretty easy, according to WTVJ-TV.

The charges are odd. I can understand interference with an educational institution but she is also charged with burglary, WFOR reported.  The state criminal code at Section 810.02 contains a very broad definition of burglary to include “entering or remaining in a dwelling, a structure, or a conveyance with the intent to commit an offense therein, unless the premises are at the time open to the public or the defendant is licensed or invited to enter or remain.” Thus, the basis could be that she intended to interfere with an educational institution and the school was not open to the public.

She is also charged with a crime that I have previously criticized (here and here and here): resisting an officer without violence. Resisting or opposing without violence is incredibly vague and allows for prosecutors to stack on additional charges (which add pressure for defendants to accept plea agreements). What constitutes resisting can apparently be as little as tensing an arm or moving as restraints are being applied.  That creates a dangerously fluid and subjective basis for criminal charge, even a misdemeanor. It is not clear if Francisquini leaving the school was the basis for the charge or something that occurred at the time she was put in custody.

This is not her first reported run-in with police. Media reports state that she previously worked as a deputy in the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office in Georgia and was indicted in January 2017 for allegedly hacking into another policeman’s phone.

The greatest irony is that when you search Audrey Francisquini, you come up with an Instagram that is now private and asks everyone to protect children. If this is her account, it shows a promise of a “video explanation coming stay tuned.” However, it also shows over a 1000 followers today when just a day ago she was at only 199 followers.

  1. She had a right to be there. It’s a public building, she wasn’t hurting anything, and she’s protected under the First Amendment to free speech. It’s not like she “pushy-Pentecostalled” anyone — i.e., chased after students and harassed them if they weren’t interested; she merely handed out the flyers, which, again, she had every right to do under the First Amendment.

  2. Reports that the trials of the other three officers in the Floyd case had their trial dates moved to March of next year because one of the attorneys claimed that the prosecution improperly pressured the medical examiner. If true this could also impact Chauvin’s ‘conviction’.

      Another taint on the evidence against Chauvin.

      Perhaps not surprising that this is not getting more prominent coverage. In discussions here several kept saying that the term ‘homicide’ was used in the autopsy report while others of us said the autopsy itself did not sustain a homicide conclusion and I compared it to the ‘suicide’ conclusion in Epstein’s autopsy. One could surmise then that somehow outside pressure drove part of the report.

      Chauvin’s trial disgraced America and our justice system.

  3. She may get bitten by the very laws enacted to protect students from kidnappers or drug dealers getting onto campus. While she rises to the weirdo level, there is no information that she intended, or tried, to harm any students.

    This might be one of those areas of discretion where she should be sent to mental health counseling. Her behavior is pitiful.

  4. More to be pitied than censured. Luckily we live in a country where we don’t have cities being destroyed by anarchists every day of the week so our brave law enforcement officers can throw the book at mental cases.

    1. The left-right nexus is leftist (i.e. serves single/central/monopoly/totalitarian establishment).

  5. Another stellar effort in avoiding speaking about Repub efforts to squash free speech via suppressing the vote Turley.

      1. Yes, establish a one-to-one relationship between the account, the liability of the account owner, and exchange, backed by the full faith and credit of the account owner. Also, a Green solution: electronic and energy hungry. It has its merits.
