Miami City Commissioner Michelle Spence-Jones off hook in corruption probe
By DAVID OVALLE AND CHARLES RABIN

Prosecutors will not charge Miami Commissioner Michelle Spence-Jones in four investigations involving allegations of bribery, illegal kickbacks and inappropriate influencing of personnel decisions.

The probe -- in which investigators interviewed a slew of top Miami city officials, lobbyists and consultants -- found ''insufficient evidence upon which to base a criminal charge,'' Miami-Dade prosecutor Joseph Centorino, chief of the public corruption unit, wrote in a final memo released Friday.

Spence-Jones' civil attorney Richard Alayon said the commissioner was instructed not to speak with the media as he explores potential slander or character defamation lawsuits.
