LEE COUNTY, Fla. — Randall Rosado, 45, was found guilty on 19 criminal charges.

He was found guilty of 6 counts of Unlawful Retaliation Against Public

Officials and 13 counts of Simulating Legal Processes.

The crime involved arrest warrants, fictitious court orders, and liens against Judges, the Lee County Clerk of Court and lawyers being filed.
Most of the lawyers were involved in foreclosures.

Two individuals who were previously convicted in Lee and Okeechobee Counties hired Rosado to assist them with the foreclosure of their homes.

He created his own court and used the judgment from the fake court to get the liens.

The individuals who hired Rosado thought it was a real court.

A individual from California hired Mr. Rosado because he thought he was a real estate agent to assist him in a short sale and Mr. Rosado instead took over his property and used the fictitious court in an attempt to delay the foreclosures.

The guilty verdict was reached following an 8 day trial in Lee County.

Rosado faces up to life in prison.
