Robbie Freitas appears at a bond hearing at the Seminole County Courthouse.


Lawyers for two former Jacksonville Fraternal Order of Police leaders appeared for a pretrial hearing in Seminole County court Friday on their clients' charges stemming from the Allied Veterans of the World case.

The Office of Statewide Prosecution told the judge a plea deal is in the works for Robbie Freitas and could be finalized next Tuesday.

The deal would not have him serve any jail or prison time, as in many of the deals already worked out in the case.

Freitas retired after his arrest. At the time, he was the vice president of the FOP.

There was no significant development in the case against Nelson Cuba, who was FOP president at the time of his arrest last year.
