Dania Beach, FL (PRWEB) March 06, 2013
Pastor Bob Sands and Community Bible Church in Dania Beach announced today that renowned author and criminal defense attorney, John Contini will speak at the non-denominatioal church on Sunday, March 10th, 2013 at 10:30 AM.
“We are thrilled to have John speaking to us once again. He is an authentic, compassionate man of faith that shares his ups and downs freely with his audience,” said Bob Sands, Pastor of Community Bible Church.
John Contini rose to fame when he defended Gil Fernandez, Jr., a former Miami-Dade Police Officer and “Mr. Florida” body building champion. Fernandez was charged with an execution-style triple murder in 1990 and was also alleged to have been a soldier for the mob in South Florida (Case #9013837, Broward County Circuit Court). But a year before his indictment and arrest, Fernandez committed his life to Christ. This redemption positively impacted Contini’s life, changing him and charting a course for him that would make all the difference.
“John is good at communicating the love of Christ to the accused and to those who feel like they have failed in life. His message is clear. God loves you where you are but doesn’t leave you there,” Sands said.
John Contini has earned a reputation as an attorney who believes one is innocent until proven guilty and fights for that right for all of his clients. He advocates for the falsely accused. When others have declared the person guilty in the court of public opinion, he ensures they have their day in court. He also defends the indefensible, working to seek justice and help those individuals get back on the right path. “The criminally accused are treated like modern-day lepers,” Contini said. “Those who are shunned and ostracized by society need our help and mercy the most. After all, we must demonstrate forgiveness if we want to be forgiven ourselves,” he added.
John is the author of two books: "Danger Road: A true crime story of murder and redemption,' and "Feeling the Heat: An interrogation of the soul." His third book, soon to be released, is titled "Confessions of a Criminal Defense Lawyer." More importantly, he is the devoted father of three children, Kathleen, Johnny and Mary and the proud grandfather of Bella.
