Ron DeSantis Suspends Florida Prosecutor Monique Worrell, Drawing Criticism from Civil Rights Groups

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has suspended State Attorney Monique Worrell, the only Black woman serving as a local prosecutor in the state, for her progressive and reform-minded approach to criminal justice. This is the second time DeSantis has suspended a local prosecutor, and the move has been met with criticism from civil rights groups. A federal judge has called the suspension unconstitutional, and the case is now being appealed to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.
