Weeks after a judge threw out key charges in a case alleging inappropriate ties between a former state legislator and a Florida community college, prosecutors on Wednesday filed aggressive new criminal charges against the lawmaker and the college's former president, The Miami Herald reported. Prosecutors cited "superseding information" in bringing charges of grand theft and conspiracy to commit grand theft against Ray Sansom, former speaker of the Florida House, and Bob Richburg, former president of Northwest Florida State College, for their roles in an arrangement in which the state gave the college $6 million in taxpayer money for an airport building that a private developer wanted to use. A state judge threw out misconduct charges against both men in October, saying it was unclear whether the actions were illegal.
