PANAMA CITY — A news conference will be held Friday to announce the outcome of a long-term federal investigation into widespread public corruption.


The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Florida announced the event in a Wednesday email. Lawrence Keefe, the U.S. Attorney for the district, will conduct the press conference at 10 a.m. on the second floor of his Panama City office.

"The action" to be announced "is the result of vigilant law enforcement work by the U.S. Attorney’s Office’s Public Trust Unit," the news release said.


Keefe announced the formation of the Public Trust Unit in August after guilty pleas were entered in the cases of two Tallahassee government officials on fraud charges. He said at the time the group was pursuing "all sorts of leads in all sorts of places."

Four months prior to Keefe’s August announcement, the FBI served subpoenas in the city of Lynn Haven seeking paperwork related to Michael White, its former city manager, and two businesses that had done business with the city.


The Bay County School District also received subpoenas from the FBI in April calling for records of work done by companies contracted following Hurricane Michael.


It is unclear whether either set of subpoenas is related to Friday’s announcement.
