DAYTONA BEACH, Fla -- Brutal rape allegations against County Council candidate Willie J. Kimmons were quietly dismissed in June by the State Attorney's Office without ever reaching a circuit judge. And yet a temporary order of protection was granted to the alleged victim by a judge.

However, her request for a permanent order of protection won't be heard until Nov. 9, the day after the general elections.

Kimmons, accompanied by private counsel refused to speak to Daytona Beach police investigators -- his rights under the law. And he's certainly not talking now -- at least not to this media outlet, which is outlining the rape allegations while recognizing the presumption of innocence is afforded Kimmons unless or until tried and convicted in a court of law.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- One of Volusia County's two beach cams for online viewers is working.

The "Daytona Beach" beach cam at the Dunlawton approach in Daytona Beach Shores shows shows a blackened blackened screen with a brief message that reads: "We are havoing problems with playback. We apologize for the inconvenience."

The cam has been inoperable since last weekend. The audio is fine, but the video feed is off. The other county beach cam on the Flagler Avenue Beach ramp is working fine.
