Attorney defends alleged renter-scammer

Joel00_del_dade_ho_2 A lawyer for a man charged with illegally renting a town home to a couple says his client is a victim of a “misunderstanding.”

Hialeah police say Joel Del Rosario took a $2,400 payment for a three-bedroom, two-bathroom town home at an under-construction housing community in Hialeah. The home was actually an empty model used to show prospective buyers, police say.

Defense attorney Ed Martinez says Hialeah detectives “jumped the gun” in arresting Del Rosario, 25, and Daniel Argilagos,, 35. The story appeared on the front of Tuesday’s Herald Metro section.

Martinez didn’t elaborate on why it was a misunderstanding. Argilagos is represented by Raul Perez Ceballos. Both defendants have pleaded not guilty.

My Client, Daniel Argilagos, committed no crime. Once a full investigation is completed in this case, I am confident all charges shall be dropped against him.
