Poole had arrested a woman on false drug charges as part of a conspiracy by disbarred attorney Scott Rothstein. The woman was the ex-wife of a friend of Rothstein, who wanted to use the arrest against her in a custody battle. Sheriff's Lt. David Benjamin had previously been sentenced to five years for ordering the arrest.
