PALM HARBOR, FL -- Megan Crisante of PMP Café LLC, based here and dba the Palm Harbor sweepstakes game café, has filed a federal lawsuit charging Pinellas County law enforcement officials violated her constitutional rights when they raided her establishment last July.

Crisante is the daughter of Jeaneen Crisante, who was acquitted of similar charges in a Marion County court on Oct. 18, 2010. As reported by VT at the time, jurors in that case clapped and cheered when the "not guilty" verdict was announced. | SEE STORY

The Crisante location raided in July was previously owned by Florida State Rep. Peter Nehr, who has argued that the sweepstakes videogame business is legal under current Florida law. | SEE STORY
