Boynton Police Cite “Marsy’s Law” In Not Releasing Location Of Attack, Potentially Impeding Public Safety
DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Delray Beach Police arrested Boca Raton resident Frantz Demezier, 19, on charges of sexual battery with force, burglary and false imprisonment for an attack that allegedly occurred within the city limits of Boynton Beach.
As is often the case now, Boynton Beach Police are refusing to release the location of the assault citing “Marsy’s Law.” Marsy’s Law is supposed to protect victims, but some police departments — including Boynton Beach — are routinely in the spotlight for withholding questionable amounts of information that could hamper public safety. While refusing to release the location of the assault, Boynton Beach Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying other potential victims, although that may be difficult without knowing where the general area of where the assault occurred.
In this case, Demezier is accused of punching a woman in the face, then dragging her into an apartment where the two struggled before the alleged sexual assault took place.
Read the complete affidavit of probable cause, below.
Demezier, according to jail records, lives in the 600 block of NW 13th Street in Boca Raton but was arrested by Delray Beach Police. The incident occurred in Boynton.
