Crist's Deputy AG, Key Player In Schiavo Case, Appointed Judge, 22 Oct 2005 [cached]
John Carassas , 39, of Palm Harbor, who was serving as a deputy to Attorney General Charlie Crist, was the former state representative from House District 54 from 2000-2003, a seat now held by former Pinellas County Sheriff Everett Rice (R-Treasure Island) who is now seeking the office of attorney general.
Carassas had resigned his seat in the Florida Legislature in July, 2003, to assume his position in the attorney general's office where he served as the regional deputy for Central Florida which included the St. Petersburg area.
Rice and Carassas were directly involved in the Schiavo case, having been involved in alleged prohibited ex parte private conversations with Greer concerning the case which resulted in attorneys for Mary and Robert Schindler Sr., the parents of Terri Schiavo, to formally request the recusal of Judge Greer from the case.
Patricia Fields Anderson, former lead attorney for the Schindlers, moved for Greer's recusal in September 2003 after learning that Carassas had privately discussed the Schiavo case with Greer after Gov.
