Is this a Carl Hiaasen plot?

I love the word “purview.” Say it out loud: purrr-view. You’ve got to purse your lips and make a snotty mouth move in order to say it.

And this little abstract is outside mine–given that it’s a criminal case and Sidebar tries hard to stand on the sidelines of civil cases.

But the story one can tease out of this abstract is far too intriguing not to offer it up here. Don’t you want to know all about it? (And don’t you want to know where the wife is currently hiding?)
