Boynton Beach Mayor, Jose Rodriguez, was arrested today on public corruption charges. He is accused of using his political position to try to end an abuse investigation against him. The allegations are that he was being investigated for abusing his estranged wife and her child. He allegedly bullied police officers and offered the city's interim manager a full-time position in exchange for her stopping the investigation against him. Rodriguez is being prosecuted by the public corruption unit of the State Attorney's Office. He is presently being charged with unlawful compensation or reward for official behavior (or bribery), solicitation to commit unlawful disclosure of confidential criminal information, and obstruction of a law-enforcement officer. According to Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office Records, Rodriguez was released on $8,000 bail.
