Sean Mullins said it was sometime in 2006 when, as a member of the Community Relations Division for the Levy County Sheriff’s Office, he was asked to come and speak to clients of the Levy Association of Retarded Citizens about matters of law, the types of things all people, as members of society, should be familiar with.
