Neither the Respondent nor the Commission Advocate filed any exceptions to the Recommended Public Report, which recommends that the Commission find that the Respondent, as a Deputy Sheriff for the Broward County Sheriff's Department, violated Section 112.313(7)(a), Florida Statutes, by holding a private investigator's license and associating himself with a corporation which was formed to conduct private investigations. Having reviewed the Recommended Public Report and the record of the public hearing of this complaint, the Commission hereby adopts the findings of fact, conclusions of law, and recommended final action which have been presented in the Recommended Public Report. Accordingly, the Commission on Ethics finds that the Respondent, Steven Rubino, as a Deputy Sheriff for the Broward County Sheriff's Department, violated Section 112.313(7)(a), Florida Statutes.
