Fla. judge to decide whether to shield Carroll

Posted: Updated:

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP)- The administration of Gov. Rick Scott is heading to court to get a protective order so Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll doesn't have to answer questions in a criminal case involving one of her former aides.

A Leon County judge is scheduled to hold a hearing Thursday on the request.
Carletha Cole is charged with violating state law for allegedly giving a recording of a conversation with Carroll's chief of staff to a reporter.

Cole's lawyers have tried to question Carroll and Carroll's travel aide about the case.
The lawyers filed court documents in which Cole claimed to have found Carroll in a "compromising position" with the travel aide inside's Carroll's office.

Carroll, a former Navy officer who is also married and a mother of three, called the allegations false and absurd.
