Florida has the broadest Sunshine Laws in the country. However, the gov't has discretion when there is an ongoing criminal investigation (Section 119.071, IIRC). In this situation, the prosecution wants brownie points for being indiscrete.
This is just my opinion and in no way constitutes legal advice or the opinion of the Greatest Political Subdivision in the History of Civilization - the State of Florida.
